Bowers Gifford & North Benfleet Parish Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan, for the whole of the Parish area. The purpose of the Plan is to make proposals for how we can create "One Village " of Bowers Gifford & North Benfleet that remains separated from Basildon by the Green Belt.


Keep an eye on the Parish Council website for updates or come along to Parish Council meetings.


The next meeting is :

 You can view the Parish Council's Response to Basidon Council's Publication Local Plan (Regulation 19) Consultation by clicking on to the Left Hand Panel - Basildon Council Consultations - Various (opposite) and scrolling down the page to the Responses - There are two booklets









Exciting times are ahead as the Parish becomes part of Basildon Council's Local Plan bigger picture but development has to be in a way that benefits everyone and you could be a part of helping to make our Neighbourhood Plan a reality. The Parish Council has two Councillor vacancies.



Your Parish Council is non-political and plays a vital role in representing the interests of residents and influencing other decision makers in matters that affect the quality and life of all who live and work in the Parish.

Once again the Parish Council is taking part in Essex County Council's Winter Salt Scheme.


This year the collection point to pick up the salt has changed to THE GREEN BARN FARM SHOP, along the A130


Residents of Bowers Gifford & North Benfleet (only) can collect two 25kg bags of FREE salt from  to spread in areas on the public highway such as footpaths outside local shops, access routes to bus stops etc and which are not already salted by Essex County Council gritters. (It is not however for private use or driveways )


Please be prepared to provide proof of your address when collecting the bags of salt if requested to do so. Many residents took part last year and helped to keep our Parish public highways clear in icy and snowy condition.
