Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Preferred Approach 2015

Representation ID: 1980

Received: 22/04/2016

Respondent: Milton Conservation Society

Representation Summary:

In particular we would like to see far more recognition given to historic Southend, including the non-designated building frontages 'of townscape merit' in the High Street. This 'townscape merit' should not just be a 'material consideration' in future planning decisions but should be woven into the future planning of our town centre. This is not because of some sort of nostalgic affection for these buildings (although this does strongly exist) but because these are amongst the best buildings in our town and future construction should aggregate from these with the best of human scaled, modern or traditional 'living' architecture.
