Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) - Revised Proposed Submission 2016

Representation ID: 2558

Received: 12/11/2016

Respondent: Miss Laura Cowell

Representation Summary:

The pedestrianisation of Warrior Square including up to the High Street is long overdue and would help draw people into this area from the High Street. The area outside Maitland House feels like a back street, choked up with cars and Warrior Square is blocked from view if you are in the High Street.

The proposals for London Road are long overdue, there is such a opportunity to pedestrianise the area currently used for a taxi rank in order to create outside seating for the many restaurants in summer time and a proper location for the market. The pavement in this location is very narrow for such a busy section and heading towards the high street there is a bottle neck caused by the current bicycle parking provisions, forcing you to walk into the road if you wish to head south down the high street. This area is crying out to be pedestrianised and create better links between Sainsburys/College Way and the High Street.
