Representation ID: 2147

Received: 15/02/2016

Respondent: Southend BID

Representation Summary:

The proposed redevelopment of Roots Hall and Roots Hall Stadium are predicated on the Football Club relocating to Fossetts Farm with a significant volume of retail use. Whilst the redevelopment of these sites is supported the retail use and volume at Fossetts Farm would see the end of the High Street as a retail offer. The BID most strongly opposes the Fossetts Farm proposals and any movement of retail away from the SCAAP area and Town Centre.
