Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Preferred Approach 2015

Representation ID: 2181

Received: 15/02/2016

Respondent: Southend BID

Representation Summary:

Both the Council and the BID recognise the need to diversify the uses within the Central Area and indeed cite the success of London Road eateries. However, this needs to have some further consideration in relation to pedestrianising the stub-end of London Road, introducing a series of stalls that would allow for street food to further define this zone as a place that people come to enjoy, to eat, to meet and to use the cinema, which would include a reconfiguration and animation around Victoria Circus bleeding across into the northern end of the High Street.
