The Former Co-op Wickford, Essex

We would like to hear your views

Heriot UK will soon be submitting a revised planning application to Basildon Borough Council for the redevelopment of the former Co-op site, Wickford, and would like to hear your views on the new proposal.

The Development

The new plans will still deliver a new modern food store, but this will now include the addition of 134 no. affordable flats above, which will hopefully be owned and managed by The Guinness Partnership, subject to their internal approvals. The building height will be between 5 and 7 storeys and will include a large amenity area at first floor, basement car park for residents and a landscaped public area to the front of the building.

The proposal will also reconfigure and resurface the existing car park for the benefit of all users of the town centre. It will also improve pedestrian access and provide landscaping and replacement trees.

How do I comment on the proposed development?

Before any decision is made, Heriot are inviting local residents to have their say through a consultation website and a public consultation exhibition where you will be able to find out more information and give your feedback directly to Heriot and their team.

The public exhibition will be held at The Nevendon Centre, Nevendon Road, Wickford, Essex SS12 0QG on Thursday 31st August 2023 between 3pm to 8pm and Friday 1st September 2023 between 10am to 4pm.

If you are unable to attend you will be able to find further details on the attached PDF document which includes copies of all the public consultation exhibition displays.
