2. Place – What makes a place?

The Commission will need to discuss the geographic and spatial characteristics that make Basildon Borough.

3. Economy – Encouraging Economic Growth

The Commission will need to discuss economic growth in Basildon Borough, and how this can contribute to inclusive growth.

4. People – Encouraging Social Growth

The Commission will need to discuss social growth in the Basildon Borough, and how this can contribute to inclusive growth.

5. Politics and Governance – Governance & Policy

The Commission will need to discuss current policies and governance in the Basildon Borough and how these could be changed or implemented to work towards inclusive growth.

6. Bridging the Gap – Inspiring Change Your Way

In light of all of the geographic, economic, social, and political factors that have been discussed, the Commission will need to bring these together and suggest a way forward that will begin to enable inclusive growth in the Basildon Borough. This final theme meeting will allow the panel to pull together everything which has been discussed over the last six months and will lead to the drafting of a report which will be fed back to Basildon Council later in the year.
