Representation:

If the council supported Hamlet Court Road, it could attract shoppers away from Leigh which is overly congested and charges very high rent and rates.

Leigh - lack of parking
Leigh/Chalkwell - over development, lack of parking, failure of members and SBC to take account of local residents views. Lack of a plan and consistent approach means reactive to developers and get inconsistent planning decisions

Item: 11.1 What do you think are the key issues facing the neighbourhoods in the Borough

Representation:

Parking in Leigh is a nightmare as it is in Southend during the summer period. On hot days it is gridlock at the seafront which makes it very unpleasant when one has to get around for work. The issue of lack of Housing is important however we must provide the associated infrastructure like green space, doctors, etc.

These are simple, geographic definitions of our neighbourhoods. Our local plan should identify other definitions of place such as seafront, historic area, gathering places, residential places, business places, recreational places. We know that this does happen in the detail of the local planning but it might help at a wider conceptual level. For example rather than thinking about the town as Leigh, Westcliff, Southend etc., why not, seafront, high streets, parks, residence. This changes the emphasis to what a place is rather than what it is called.

Whilst I am pleased to see the plan recognises that there is a high density of houses and lack of tree cover and open space and acknowledgement of London Roads commercial focus there is little mention of Hamlet Court Road which has declined significantly over the years . Hamlet Court Road has a number of empty or frequently changing outlets which is detrimental to the area. Perhaps it is an issue with the rates but also more needs to be done to attract businesses and shoppers here.

I am pleased to see mention of policing and making Southend a safer environment which is needed. Again, on Hamlet Court Road this is an issue which needs addressing. Particularly around Hamlet Court Road this is an issue which needs addressing . Particularly around the public toilets where there is a large space and benches which attract public drinking and daily drug deals. It is unsafe and unsightly and I can't understand why it has not been addressed if the culprits are so visible and there everyday!

Litter is another major issue in Westcliff, I work in Leigh and walk through Chalkwell and frequently see litter pickers/ street cleaning units but little or no presence in Westcliff. London Road shops often leave their rubbish outside too which should not be allowed.

Westcliff deserves the same community focus that neighbouring towns and more attention that is currently receives. Thank you for your time and effort that has gone into the local plan consultations.

Leigh is the neighbourhood most impacted by the air and noise pollution from Southend Airport. By varying the take off path perhaps on a weekly basis, some respite can be obtained. Requiring the airlines to use quieter and more fuel efficient jets could be a positive PR boost for the airport.

1.Southend, Leigh and Westcliff - Over population, too many cars and serious congestion.
2.Southend, Shoebury, Leigh - lack of protection and management for wildlife for key areas of importance to wildlife. Leisure activities need to be balanced with giving wildlife undisturbed space ie no dog walking off leads in nature protected areas, no jet skiing in areas that are sensitive to feeding waders/geese etc, less manicuring and more scrub left for birds to breed without disturbance.

Leigh, needs to establish smart residents parking, south of the London road. Residents can get a permit, but visitors pay to park in the streets. This will help invest in the area to mitigate impact of visitors, help disperse the parking problem, reduce car circulation around local streets looking for free parking and reduce pollution, particularly around schools, and help prioritize car parks in Leigh. Also, may encourage more sustainable forms of transport, including for school drop off

I am against the plan for a large development on the seafront near the Kursaal. It will take trade away from Southend town centre shops, restaurants and cinema. Also the scale is just too big. It reminds me of a similar recent entertainment development on Exmouth's seafront. It was a very expensive high-spec building which although is still open, is not popular with locals or visitors and was virtually empty last August when I visited.

One of the major concerns for people I work with and know is the lack of support for SEN pupils in schools-this includes a lot of school spaces all being in one secondary school-which is in special measures. There is a lack of specialist provision for pupil between Years 2 and 6, and schools don’t feel equipped to support the more complex needs we have in the community now.

Section 11 – Southend’s Neighbourhoods
In Leigh Town Council’s opinion, the key issues facing the neighbourhoods are community safety; air quality (especially at school junctions and traffic calming measures); parking stress (conflict between residents and business); cliff spillage. The neighbourhoods feel neglected for central Southend. We have concerns regarding the promotion for Southend to become a city as there has been no consultation or consideration as to how it would work and the effect it would have on neighbourhoods.
