Southend 2050 - Pride and Joy

2050 Pride and Joy

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

People are proud of where they live - the historic buildings and well designed new developments, the seafront and the open spaces. The city centre has generated jobs, homes and leisure opportunities, whilst the borough's focal centres all offer something different and distinctive. With its reputation for creativity and culture, as well as the draw of the seaside, Southend-on-Sea is a place that residents and visitors can enjoy in all seasons. Above all we continue to cherish our coastline as a place to come together, be well and enjoy life.
