2050 Connected and Smart logo

By the year 2050 how does our borough, Southend-on-Sea, look and feel?

Southend is a leading digital city and an accessible place. It is easy to get to and easy to get around and easy for residents, visitors and businesses to park. Everyone can get out to enjoy the boroughs thriving city centre, its neighbourhoods and its open spaces. Older people can be independent for longer. Local people also find it easy to get further afield with quick journey times into the capital and elsewhere, and an airport that has continued to open up business and leisure travel overseas - but in balance with the local environment.
