RESIDENTS on the Redbrick Estate are invited to attend an ‘estate walkabout’ tomorrow to help improve the area.

The walkabout is taking place alongside the St Martin’s Community Safety Action Zone, which is a 12 month Basildon Community Safety Partnership project aimed at working with residents to make improvements.

Residents are invited to join Basildon Council’s officers to walk around the Redbrick estate to identify areas which need to be improved.

Cllr Malcolm Buckley , cabinet member with responsibility for community safety, said: “We held the first of the St Martin’s ward estate walkabouts last month, and it was extremely useful in finding out some of the issues which matter most to local residents.

"I hope that residents from the Redbrick estate will come along so that we can work together in addressing these issues and making it a more pleasant place for them to live.”

Residents who would like to get involved in the estate walkabout should meet at the junction of Frettons and Gordon Road at 11am on Wednesday 19 September.

The CSAZ street meeting is on Thursday October 11 from 2.30pm outside the Co-Op in Butneys.
