Conservation Takes a Big Step Forwards

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Cabinet are going to consider Conservation Area Designation on the 16th January! After two and a half years of stating the case and a considerable amount of lobbying this is a massive step forwards and incredibly significant for Hamlet Court Road and Westcliff. If approved in due course by the Council it would mean that the amazing architecture is protected and we can work to get funds into the road and generally mobilize the community, traders and the Council for the type of regeneration effort that is needed and is widely being promoted by the Government, Historic England, retail and place management experts across the land.

At last Hamlet Court Road might be able to look forward to real progress as a modern day high street with a celebrated history.
