Better Queensway

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is developing proposals to regenerate the Queensway area, creating a new residential-led development made up of high quality housing, a better living environment and place for people to live, socialise and play.


At the end of 2017, we held a public consultation to find out what the community thought about the high-level principles for the development, including details on the transport infrastructure needed to bring the development forward. We would like to thank everybody that attended our public events and provided feedback as part of the consultation.


The scheme will transform the Queensway area into a vibrant community of around 1,300 homes, which will include a minimum of 441 affordable housing units, and make life better for both existing and new residents. Our aim is to reconnect communities separated by the Queensway road and improve access to the town centre, seafront, jobs and shops, helping to boost the local economy.


The public consultation demonstrated strong support for the principle of development on the site and for improving the area. A summary of the consultation findings and the full report can be viewed here.
