Representation ID: 2382

Received: 12/02/2016

Respondent: Procuresure Consulting

Representation Summary:

Southend-On-Sea conservation areas should be extended and cover the majority of Southend's Georgian and Victorian buildings, both residential and commercial. Shop owners and retailers should have strict planning guidelines and be forced to maintain shop fronts. Shops such as Bargain buy with their over use of on street advertising and garish and tacky shop fronts should be banned and in place smaller and more traditional shop fronts should be used. Hitchin, Bury St Edmunds etc have good planning control which maintains the heritage look and feeling of pride in those towns.
