Ten weeks ago we took control of Southend Council – and we’re already making a difference. Here are ten things our administration is already delivering for Southend:

  1. £4.3mn for new council housing
  2. Put money in the budget for more street lights
  3. Better enforcement for dangerous parking around schools
  4. Introduced a Public Spaces Protection Order to combat anti-social behaviour – now extended to include Hamlet Court Road and Southchurch Gardens
  5. Better housing allocations policy including more help for the homeless
  6. Commitment to becoming a Living Wage Employer
  7. Changes for better social care leadership
  8. Halt to unnecessary tree felling
  9. Charges scrapped for blue badge holders and one-hour parking costs in town centre car parks reduced
  10. A new town centre investment partnership

10 achievements in our first 10 weeks – and many more to come.

Joint administration, delivering a better Southend for all
