Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Preferred Approach 2015
Representation ID: 1996
Respondent: Burges Estate Residents Association
On balance Option B is to be preferred for providing the greatest flexibility in what is a fast changing situation. There is also the question mark about one or two centres. The plan makes implicit reference to reinforcing routes to the two main areas which suggests that the middle might become less of a Class A1 retail use. Overall while there is a case for upgrading and improving the shopping environment both in terms of public space and retail stores, the overall volume of retail space should not increase.
