I have no problem with the Vision put forward for the centre, but I would question the rationale when it states that the regeneration of the centre will be led by the Uni campus. I have seen nothing in the document or elsewhere to suggest that the scale of activity, investment, etc. by the University would be such as to lead the way.

Would argue that in relation to the Strategic Vision the Sea is what gives Southend its Unique Selling Point (USP) and this needs to be a key theme in relation to future planning policy supporting the continued growth, regeneration and reinvestment.

The vision is too vague to make a judgement.
This 2015 document only mentions people as categories. It mentions building on car parks and creating more precincts without any consideration of how people of all ages and abilities including elderly and/or disabled, (blind, deaf, restricted mobility, learning disabled) mums with children and buggies are going to access and move in this changed and regenerated town centre or how it will cater for all kinds of visitors. Where is the statement of Equality duty?

We do not agree with the vision of Southend as a "City by the Sea". We resent the amount of public money being spent on Bids to become a City. There is no evidence that the residents desire this status or indeed that Her Majesty would be inclined to support it. The image of the town already attracts over 6 million visitors a year, and it will always be perceived as a 'down market seaside resort' . What needs changing is the economy. More well paid jobs in modern hi-tech industries. This we believe is planned
