Connect is a exclusive collection of family homes within minutes of Laindon train station. These attractive contemporary houses are part of the exciting regeneration of Laindon, one of the most eagerly awaited developments in the East of England.
There’s a real buzz about this scheme, which will transform the centre of Laindon with a new modern High Street, featuring shops, a supermarket, places to relax and an expanded, new health centre. The new community was recognised with many awards even before the first brick was laid – including the ‘Best Regeneration’ prize from the Housing Design Awards.
Exciting times for the growth and development of Basildon. Regeneration and growth is placed at the centre of a committed strategic plan from Basildon Borough Council to ensure that Basildon continues to be a great place to live, work and socialise, now and in the future.

Basildon itself has excellent facilities, including the Sporting Village with its Olympic-standard pool, 100-station gym, climbing wall and eight-court sports hall. Just 2.5 miles away The Festival Leisure Park is a major leisure destination with Cineworld Cinemas, Hollywood Bowl, 360 Play, bars, nightclubs and restaurants offering food from across the world. Meanwhile, over in neighbouring Brentwood, the town’s theatre stages highly regarded productions and events, while the Ski and Snowboard centre caters for beginners and experienced winter sports enthusiasts alike.
