Southend Central Area Action Plan

What do we want to know?: 

The Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP) Revised Proposed Submission version is published for public consultation from 5pm on 16th December.

To comment on the document please visit the online interactive consultation system. Hard copies may also be viewed at Southend Borough Council Customer Service Centre between 8.45am and 5.15pm and at all Southend Libraries during normal opening hours.

The purpose of the SCAAP is to give more detailed consideration to how and where regeneration and growth can sustainably be accommodated in the Southend Central Area, including the Town Centre, Central Seafront Area and gateway neighbourhoods of Victoria and Sutton.

The SCAAP contains proposals for ‘Policy Areas’ and ‘Opportunity Sites’ aimed at strengthening and transforming Southend Town Centre’s sub-regional role as a successful retail and commercial destination, cultural hub and educational centre of excellence, leisure and tourist attraction and an excellent place to live.

It also seeks to safeguard, conserve and enhance the significant biodiversity, green space and other environmental resources in the area and on the foreshore, as well as to bring about public realm and access improvements.


Representations can be made during the consultation ending at 5pm on 16th December.
