Block Management Basildon
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Basildon .
History of Basildon
Basildon is situated in Essex, 26 miles east of central London. It was first recorded as Belesduna,in the Domesday Book, published in 1086, during the era of Edward I, "The Conqueror", (r.1066-1087). At this time, the settlement had a population of 7 households, the smallest 40% of settlements recorded in the Domesday book. The name Basildon may originate from the Anglo-Saxon personal name Boerthal and the Anglo-Saxon word dun,meaning hill.
Basildon has come along way since Medieval times. During the 19th century, a railway service started, to Pitsea in 1856, and Laindon, in 1888.
In the 1940s, Billericay Urban District Council and Essex County Council, were concerned by a lack of amenities in the area, and petitioned the Government to create a New Town, for Basildon. After World War II (1939-1945), there was a housing shortage problem. This was remedied in 1949, with Basildon New Town: one of eight, established 20 to 30 miles from central London. Many homes were built, and industries thrived, at a much needed time.
By the 1960s, Basildon was a rapidly developing retail centre, and 60 factories were built. Employment opportunities flourished.
In 1971, the town centre cinema was completed; and in 1973, Basildon Hospital finally completed. In 1974, Basildon Railway station opened. Since the 1970s, there has been a programme of building estates; and Basildon continues to expand.
In 1999, as Basildon celebrated 50 years, Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, officially opened the new steel and glass belltower, in St. Martin's Square.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Basildon
I very much enjoyed my experience of wakeboarding, as I was being towed on my surfboard, by a motorboat. I found it remarkably easy. I'll definitely come back here again.
