Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Preferred Approach 2015
Representation ID: 2225
Respondent: Southend BID
In relation to the existing Sainsburys site and redevelopment of the whole block OS15. This is a site that could take a significantly higher building to cater for a larger number of residential units, complementing the Victoria Gateway proposals to re-use the redundant office space to residential. Fantastic views are offered here and the larger number of residential units would sustain the A3 restaurant and café uses around the top end of the High Street and stub end of London Road. This all needs to be considered in relation to adequate onsite parking provision, greater connectivity to public transport and a greatly enhanced Public Realm. The BID would call for the Council to present design codes to ensure the design quality of development meets the Councils high aspirations.
