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
  • the open spaces

The city centre has generated:

  • jobs
  • homes
  • leisure opportunities

whilst our focal centres all offer something different and distinctive.

With its reputation for creativity and culture, as well as the draw of the seaside, Southend is a place that everyone can enjoy in all seasons.

Above all we continue to cherish our coastline as a place to come together, be well and enjoy life.

Outcomes - In five years' time

  • there is a tangible sense of pride in the place and local people are actively, and knowledgeably, talking up Southend
  • the variety and quality of our outstanding cultural and leisure offer has increased for our residents and visitors and we have become the region’s first choice coastal tourism destination
  • we have invested in protecting and nurturing our coastline, which continues to be our much loved and best used asset
  • our streets and public spaces are valued and support the mental and physical wellbeing of residents and visitors
