Similarly I have no problem with the Strategic objectives with the exception of one fundamental addition. All efforts to promote design excellence, quality developments and use of sustainable materials will be for nothing without continuing effective maintenance and upkeep. Where the Council has the opportunity and that is especially work in the public realm, routine and timely maintenance to retain the intrinsic value of the work is essential. The designs of today are our heritage of tomorrow.

Objective 1 - Currently the High Street is run-down. This is partly due to the recession (2008-2014) but more fundamentally to the restricted hinterland of The Centre which only has two main sides. This means that the shopping draw is limited as testified by the growing number of vacancies.
Thus a wider range of uses in the High Street providing diversity and assisting viability and vitality is to be welcomed. I, therefore support Objective 1 with its emphasis on "a wider range of...." which would help to increase the draw of the shopping centre.

A number of strategic objectives are set out within the SCAAP which include improving and transforming the economic vitality, viability and diversity of Southend Central Area by encouraging the establishment of a wider range of homes, businesses and shops whilst providing new opportunities for learning, recreation and leisure. We suggest that a further strategic objective be included that seeks to maintain and protect existing shops and town centre uses in the Southend Central Area.
