Labour secures a review of controversial Tory sea wall

As a partner in the new Joint Administration running Southend Council, Labour have secured a review of the controversial plans for new sea defences in Shoebury. Council officers are to look again at the plans, in an effort to find an option which meets both the local need and public approval.

Councillor Ian Gilbert, Leader of the Labour Group and Deputy Leader of the Council, said, "Residents felt that their concerns had been ignored by an out-of-touch Conservative administration. Labour said throughout the campaign that the Tories had lost public confidence, and with reviewing the sea wall decision is one of the first acts of the new joint administration we are making a clear break with the attitudes of the past."
