Public consultation

Below is a brief summary of last year’s consultation and an overview of the findings:


The consultation

We carried out a public consultation between 8th November 2017 and 15th December 2017 to understand what the community thought about the high-level principles for developing the Queensway area, including details on the transport infrastructure needed to bring the development forward.


We held a preview for existing Queensway residents and two public consultation events, which were attended by 300 people. As part of the consultation, 120 people provided feedback.


Consultation feedback

The consultation demonstrated support for the principle of development on the Better Queensway site and for improving the area through the provision of high-quality homes and building design, affordable housing and public space.


There were some concerns over changes to the wider road network and impact on the town. In response to this, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council has agreed that the subsequent design for the transport scheme will be carried out with the future development partner to ensure the road scheme and the housing development can fit together in the best possible way.
