Two opportunities to join:
Sanctuary took over Swan Housing Association in February 2023. Sanctuary is now working with Swan to deliver the Laindon centre regeneration, recognising the critical importance of the project to the local community and to the wider borough of Basildon.
In 2018 Swan acquired Planning Permission for the regeneration of Laindon town centre to create new homes, a new high street, and an expanded new health centre.
The regeneration paused in 2021 as two new planning applications were needed – one to make changes to the highways design required by Essex County Council and the other to update the method of building the new homes to meet updated building regulations introduced since the original planning application was submitted.
The project was further stalled after Swan encountered financial difficulties, which led to Sanctuary acquiring Swan in February 2023.
Sanctuary is now working with Swan to deliver the Laindon centre regeneration, recognising the critical importance of the project to the local community and to the wider borough of Basildon.
Sanctuary is undertaking a review of the Laindon site to find a solution to get the regeneration back on track.
