Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Preferred Approach 2015

Question 26: Do you agree with the proposed approach to managing development within the Tylers Policy Area and Opportunity Site 6: Tylers Avenue? Please explain your answer.

Representation ID: 2100

Received: 15/02/2016

Respondent: Stockvale Group

Representation Summary:

Various improvements have been made to the Central Seafront including improved connectivity through Pier Hill and the City Beach. Whilst there have been some improvements to the landscape of the High Street, this needs a much greater consideration and linking to new development. There needs to be greater inclusion of soft landscaping and public spaces and improved connections from the High Street through to the Seafront. This is particularly the case with Seaway Development. This development site represents a great opportunity to create a gateway development and pedestrian links and improved Public Realm linked to the Seafront. The STOCKVALE GROUP would wish to see a breaking down of the linearity of the High Street and the creation of a number of destination and unique quarters. This resonates particularly through with the Tylers Avenue, London Road and Alexandra and Clarence Street opportunity sites.

Question 12: Do you agree with the proposed approach to management of the historic environment in Southend Central Area? Please explain your answer.

Representation ID: 2102

Received: 15/02/2016

Respondent: Stockvale Group

Representation Summary:

The STOCKVALE GROUP note the townscape improvements and guidance on design quality and Heritage preservation and enhancement are inextricably linked to improvements to Public Realm and pedestrian connectivity. The STOCKVALE GROUP like the majority of the Town support the continued regeneration and reinvention of the Towns greatest icon Southend's Pleasure Pier.

As there are a number of opportunity sites outlined in the SCAAP document, the STOCKVALE GROUP would suggest that the Council (through the SCAAP document) develop design codes and development briefs to ensure that the townscape improvements and quality of design of future developments meet the aspirational high standard to create a coherent and consistent Central Area. This needs to reflect on the Towns Heritage and look towards the future to create Southend as unique place and destination for leisure, shopping, living and working.

Representation ID: 2104

Received: 15/02/2016

Respondent: Stockvale Group

Representation Summary:

Before the SCAAP document is enshrined, the STOCKVALE GROUP would ask that the Council carry out thorough research, analysis and investigation into the capabilities of the existing infrastructure and the capabilities of utility suppliers to meet the aspirational growth. This is essential and will need some degree of consideration in terms of new sub stations around the SCAAP area. This directly links to townscape and Public Realm improvements as these sub stations represent an opportunity to not create a negative space in the overall townscape.
Many of the Members of the STOCKVALE GROUP are continuously seeking to improve their offer and find that the limitation of the existing utilities coming into the SCAAP area prohibit their future plans and proposals. This has not been at all addressed in the SCAAP document.

Representation Summary:

There is concern that proposals for the Seaway Car Park (OS8) are missing the opportunity to see this as a key gateway site for both the Town and Seafront and an opportunity to provide a greatly enhanced Public Car Park provision as part of the overall site redevelopment.

Representation Summary:

In relation to OS9 the STOCKVALE GROUP wholly support the Museum but would seek the inclusion of a public car park which would appear to be feasible as the construction method for creating the Museum would involve extensive ground work, which could utilise the lower levels for a covered car park.

The STOCKVALE GROUP would further make recommendation that there is an opportunity lost on the Victoria Gateway Public Realm Improvements and the large public space should be activated with a small commercial use and extensive landscaping and planting.
