The regeneration of Wickford Town Centre is a key priority for the Council. A significant site to enable this town centre regeneration is the current Wickford Community Centre site adjoined by the Library and Willows Shopping Centre in Market Road, Wickford.
Basildon Borough Council requirement under this Contract is proposed to relocate the Community Centre to a new building on the North East corner of Nevendon Recreation Ground.
The new Community Centre is planned to sit in alongside the existing skate park. The existing Nevendon Play Centre will be demolished with new facilities provided in the new Community Centre.
