Why do we want your views?

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is renewing its Partnership Agreement with South Essex Homes, which is the Council’s management organisation for its council housing. The reason we are renewing the current agreement builds on commitments made in the Housing, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2018-28 that was agreed by Council in December 2018, along with the Council’s Southend 2050 ambitions.


The new agreement will commence on 1st October 2019 for 5 years and will be reviewed again in 2024, with the possibility of a further 5 year extension.


There will be no changes to tenancies, properties, any services provided by South Essex Homes or anything that impacts tenants as a result of the new Partnership Agreement. The new agreement will only seek to renew the partnership arrangements between both organisations.


We are informing tenants of properties currently managed by South Essex Homes of this renewal. Please be advised that you do not need to take any action as a tenant, but if you would like to comment on the Partnership Agreement renewal you may do so here.


Start: 22 Jul 2019
Ends: 18 Aug 2019

Southend 2050 – Be Part of the Conversation

An important conversation is happening across Southend-on-Sea this summer. Called ‘Southend 2050’, it’s about the future of the borough and how it affects the everyday lives of the people that live, work and visit here.

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is inviting everyone to share their aspirations about the kind of place we want to become.

Tell us your aspirations by completing the Southend 2050 survey:

By the end of 2018 we expect to have a shared ambition that people can recognise and really get behind.
