Any planning application would need to be accompanied by a detailed transport assessment that would include an analysis of the impact of the additional parking demand generated by the proposed development on the identified key visitor car parks, having regard to adopted parking standards, linked/combined existing trips, availability of parking in other convenient locations, and opportunities for further mode shift through the travel plan process. Any change in parking provision as a result of major redevelopment must not undermine the resort’s ability to accommodate visitor trips, recognising the peaks and troughs of demand for car parking.

Amend paragraph as follows:

The retail sector is crucial to the health of the local economy in terms of its attraction to visitors, business and investment.

Central Seafront Policy Area: Aims

Add to Aims at end of paragraph 3, as follows:

There will be seamless transition between the Central Seafront and the town centre. New and enhanced access points will create a network of routes that lead seamlessly to the estuary and foreshore from surrounding areas. This will increase permeability and encourage better functional links between the different policy areas, increasing footfall and opportunities to contribute towards the local economy. INSERTED:Car parking will be addressed within this integrated approach to development, which combines with other objectives for the policy area, and contributes to the vitality and viability of the central seafront area.

Amend paragraph as follows:

The Central Seafront Policy Area, as defined on the Policies Map, is a thriving leisure and tourism area INSERTED:and with over 6 million day visitors a year, it is a significant economic asset to the town. The area’s resort function will be maintained and enhanced through a co-ordinated programme of quality development and transport and environmental enhancement schemes.

[create new paragraph and update numbering of subsequent paragraphs]: Although the Pier Lift, a landmark building (Policy DS3) has helped to improve access between the Central Seafront Policy Area and Town Centre, if access was more straightforward and more pronounced in other locations such as Opportunity Site CS1.2 Seaways, there may be a better exchange of visitors between the Central Seafront and Town Centre and their functions. Its regeneration and successful integration with the town centre through improved and enhanced pedestrian links amongst other things, will therefore be key to increasing footfall and improving the areas vitality and viability.

Amend paragraph as follows:

In respect to leisure and tourism the Central Seafront draws in residents and visitors for a range of activities including use of the beach, water sports and other seafront attractions. Adventure Island is a major tourism asset to SouthendDELETED:, but its physical form tends to be inward looking and isolated from its urban context. It also obscures esplanade level views and routes to the sea . If redevelopment and expansion does occur options should be explored with the owners how changes within the site could simultaneously benefit the public realm around it by creating a more permeable boundary and incorporating active frontages to increase footfall around the site edges.
