The site and surrounding area

The area marked for the Better Queensway development is situated at the northern end of the town centre and is split by the Queensway road.


On the one side of the Queensway road, there are three of the four high rise, residential tower blocks and 24 maisonette units, with the remaining tower block situated on the other side of the road. These will be demolished as part of the new development.


The site is in a well-connected area. It is a couple of minutes’ walk from Southend Victoria railway station and is only half a mile from Southend Central railway station. The Victoria Shopping Centre is located immediately to the west of the site providing access to shops and restaurants, with the main high street shops, town centre and seafront further to the south, making it an ideal place to live.


Since the consultation in 2017, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council has purchased the Range site in Short Street and has included it within the Better Queensway site boundary because of the long-term opportunities it offers for the wider regeneration of the area.
