A detailed public consultation took place in December 2017 and in March 2018 the council started a lengthy process to attract and select a partner to work with to deliver the project. That process ended in January 2019 with Swan Housing Association being announced as the council’s ‘preferred bidder.’
The 12 February cabinet report can be read on our democracy pages.
In April 2019, the council signed contracts with Swan Housing Association, and Porters Place Southend LLP was created to deliver the regeneration project.
In September 2020, Porters Place Southend-on-Sea LLP submitted a planning application. You can view the planning application on our planning portal.
