Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) - Schedule of Modifications to the Revised Proposed Submission

Main 4

Representation ID: 2891

Received: 20/09/2017

Respondent: Essex Chambers of Commerce

Representation Summary:

We object to the statement that "There are 3,142 publically available paid for car parking spaces to the south of the Central Area" and support Stockvale as to the correct number of parking spaces available which they set out in amended version of Appendix 9. We also agree that in considering parking provision free spaces should be included alongside paid for spaces.

We would also support the proposed amended wording submitted by Stockvale in respect of Para 135 and that there should be no net loss of key visitor car parking to the south of the Central Area.

Main 5

Representation ID: 2892

Received: 20/09/2017

Respondent: Essex Chambers of Commerce

Representation Summary:

We support the modifications to the first bullet point but are not convinced that it goes far enough in protecting parking provision. We are aware of the plans being developed for the Seaway site which suggest there may be fewer spaces after development than currently exist. We would like to see a commitment that any opportunity sites that are developed provide adequate parking for their own needs in addition to protecting existing levels of parking provision.

Main 6

Representation ID: 2893

Received: 20/09/2017

Respondent: Essex Chambers of Commerce

Representation Summary:

We object to the wording of Main 6 as it does not address the issues of parking capacity in key visitor car parks despite acknowledging that there is a need to accommodate peaks and troughs in parking demand.

We don't believe that the use of the phrase "availability of parking in other convenient locations" is precise enough. What is convenient to one person might be completely inconvenient to another so this needs to be spelt out better.

We also remain unconvinced that the Council will be able to effect the modal shift it desires so would discount this option.

Main 9

Representation ID: 2896

Received: 20/09/2017

Respondent: Essex Chambers of Commerce

Representation Summary:

We support the principle behind this policy but have concerns about when any analysis of the impact of additional parking demand on the key visitor car parks would take place. This could for example be undertaken in an off peak time and therefore not consider the impact of peak demand at other times of the year. Any such analysis must reflect demand throughout the year.

We also have concerns about the potential loss of parking during any development period and what alternatives might be provided.
