Representation Summary:

Southend-On-Sea central area parking currently relies on parking in residential streets. This is especially true in the Clifftown area where the theatre and London commuters, rely on on-street parking in the residential areas surrounding. Clifftown Parade is particularly bad and has become dangerous for locals due to speed and congestion made by over parking. This causes stress and major issues for local residents. Car parks on the fringes of the city centre should be built to host and rectify these issues. Any sea front investment, regeneration or build should have a self-sustaining carpark which does not impede the local residents. A Tram system should be investigated further which would solve the train to car issue and reduce road congestion in the area; in turn reducing carbon emissions.
