Basildon is the largest town in the Basildon District of the county of Essex.

Basildon lies 25 miles east of Central London and 11 miles south of the city of Chelmsford. Nearby smaller towns include Billericay to the north, Wickford northeast and South Benfleet to the east. It was created as a new town after World War II in 1948 to accommodate the London population overspill, from the conglomeration of four small villages, namely Pitsea, Laindon, Basildon and Vange. The new town took the name Basildon as it was the most central of the four.

The local government district of Basildon, formed in 1974 and encapsulates a larger area than the town itself; the two neighbouring towns of Billericay and Wickford, as well as rural villages and smaller settlements set among the surrounding countryside, fall within its borders. Basildon Town is one of the most densely populated areas in the county.

Some of Basildons residents work in Central London due to the town being well connected in the county to the City of London and the Docklands financial and corporate headquarters districts, with a 36-58 minute journey from the three Basildon stations to London Fenchurch Street. Basildon also has access to the City via road, on the A127, and A13.

Some Basildon history

The first historical reference to Basildon is in records from 1086. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Belesduna. The name Basildon could be derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal name Boerthal and the Anglo-Saxon word dun, meaning hill. In historical documents, this name had various forms over the centuries, including Berdlesdon, Batlesdon and Belesduna.

The railway service started Essex in the 19th century to Pitsea and Laindon but it was later that proposals to provide service to the new town of Basildon, shelved for many years because of concerns that it would simply become a commuter suburb of London, were eventually forced through. A significant number of modern day residents do commute to London from the Basildon area.

By the beginning of the 1900s, Basildon had evolved with much of the land having been sold in small plots during a period of land speculation and development taking placed haphazardly with building by plot owners ranging from shelters created from recycled materials to brick built homes and with amenities such as water, gas, electricity and hard surfaced roads lacking.

In the 1940s, Billericay Urban District Council and Essex County Council, concerned by lack of amenities in the area and by its development, petitioned the Government to create a New Town. Basildon was one of eight new towns to be created in the South East of England after the passing of the New Towns Act. On 4 January 1949 officials formally designated Basildon as a New Town. Basildon Development Corporation was formed in February 1949 to transform the designated area into a modern new town. The New Town incorporated Laindon and Pitsea and was laid out around small neighbourhoods with the first house being completed in June 1951. The first tenants moved into homes in Redgrave Road in Vange. A large, illuminated town sign Basildon Town Centre Site was erected in 1956 by the railway and stood until early construction was completed.

The Basildon Centre, which incorporates the local council offices, was officially opened on 14 November 1989.

Since March 2010 Basildon has a miniature famous white Hollywood sign, reading Basildon. This was aimed to bring the town into the 21st century and to attract more visitors. Part of a plan of landscaping and infrastructure improvements funded by £400,000 from the Thames Gateway. Opponents from all parties believe spending could have been directed toward social problems.
