£30 Million Plans For Pitsea

18 November 2011, 09:33

Plans have been unveiled for a £30 million redevelopment of Pitsea town centre.

The new vision for the town centre follows the production of a Council led master plan that was approved back in April 2007.

Initial plans show a proposed new Morrison's supermarket on the site of the current Aldi store, which could create 400 new jobs, a revamped 50 stall market alongside that, improved public space and paving, and new retail and office blocks.  It is also proposed that Pembroke House undergoes an external renovation

Council Leader Tony Ball says: "Pitsea town centre is in desperate need of investment and we have been committed to its regeneration for a number of years. 

"Although the economic climate is tough, we cannot stand still or the town centre will decline further, so we must encourage private investment such as this.  

"This sort of investment would not only improve Pitsea for the better, but will create new jobs and opportunities for local people.

"Pitsea needs to be a place where people want to visit, and is an important part of the overall regeneration vision for the Borough. 

"These plans start to address the need for redevelopment, change and investment. 

"We have had discussions with the landowners about the proposals, and I await the outcome of the consultation and views of the people of Pitsea."
