Representation Summary:

It is not clear about the plan for outside the Central railway Station. Taxi ranks need to be kept and bus routes need to improve in this area to encourage more people to travel to the station and High street by bus and not use their cars.

Representation Summary:

What is a public square? I do not agree with outside dining unless tables and chairs are properly guarded by a metre high barrier to prevent blind and partially sighted people walking in to them

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: 2451

Received: 01/03/2016

Respondent: National Federation for the Blind

Representation Summary:

A new travel centre should be covered completely. It would be better located next to Victoria railway station on the old B&Q site, jf not next to the Central railway station. In most towns this happens. Buses would not then hold up the traffic near to the Royals.

Representation Summary:

What is the public square you refer to? We certainly do not want a shared space like at Victoria Gateway and City Beach. Why are railings to be removed at crossing points? This will cause danger for all pedestrians including children.

Question 27: Do you agree with the proposed approach to managing development within the Central Seafront Policy Area and sites OS7, OS8, OS9 and CS1.1? Please explain your answer.

Representation ID: 2454

Received: 01/03/2016

Respondent: National Federation for the Blind

Representation Summary:

Up to 1970 we had a direct bus route from Southend Victoria Railway station down the High street, down Pier Hill to and along the sea front. Unfortunately engineers of the day ignored our access committee and went along with their plans of pedestrianising the high street and cutting off the sea front from the high street restricting hundreds of people getting to the shops by bus.

Representation Summary:

OS8 - Spanish steps will certainly stop many disabled people from getting to the sea front. Spanish steps are not accessible and should not be used.

Respondent: National Federation for the Blind

Representation Summary:

The City Beach scheme was built without proper consultation and did not take into account the needs of disabled people. The Courtesy crossings are not legal crossings and cannot be used safely by blind people. The whole area should be reinstated to a proper road with kerbs and proper pedestrian crossings, with audible signals and tactile markings. The City Beach scheme should not be extended.
