Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Preferred Approach 2015

Representation ID: 2375

Respondent: Procuresure Consulting

Representation Summary:

Southend-On-Sea needs more innovative transport solutions. Other cities such as Manchester etc have reverted back to the tram system and park and ride schemes. There is no connectivity from rail other than car or walking. To resurrect a tram system would not only provide an efficient form of transport but enhance the sea side feel that Southend is missing. Parking is also an issue and any new development should provide a self-sufficient parking solution and stop commercial and retail parking in residential areas
