The future of parking in Southend town centre’s high on the agenda of a Government hearing today.
Inspectors will carry out the second day of meetings at the Civic Centre.
The Southend Central Area Action Plan is a major project reviewing several developments.
Among them is plans by Turnstone Estates to turn the Seaway Car Park into a fifty million pound leisure complex featuring a Travelodge hotel, Empire Cinema and several restaurants.
But several local business owners have been vocal in opposing this – as the reduction in parking spaces could cause issues for visitors.
Plans can also be viewed at all Southend libraries.
