Swan are delighted to announce that their plans to deliver the long awaited retail-led regeneration of the Laindon Centre will become a reality, after Basildon Council’s Planning Committee voted to approve their planning application at a meeting last night.

It comes after the local community backed the plans with almost 300 local residents signing letters of support and over 300 local residents signing up to support the plans on this website.
