Basildon Hotel Futures Study

Basildon Borough Council has commissioned us to undertake a Hotel Futures Study for Basildon Borough. The primary purpose of the study will be to inform the Borough Council’s planning policy approach to hotel development in the new Local Plan that is currently in preparation. This will include consideration of the need to allocate sites for hotel development and the need for a hotel as part of a potential science park that the Borough Council is considering in the A127 Enterprise Corridor. The study will also ensure that the Borough Council is better informed when responding to hotel development enquiries and will assess the need for more proactive Borough Council intervention to accelerate hotel development in the Borough.
