Aims of BAG
To protect the Green Belt around Billericay and elsewhere in Basildon Borough from loss through excessive and unjustified development.
To prevent the character of our historic towns from being changed forever.
To ensure that any development that does take place is sustainable, with adequate infrastructure and prioritises local needs.
We support the need for a new Basildon Local Plan and the need for more housing. But it must be of the right number, the right type and in the right places to best help local people obtain a home of their own.
