Full description

The site is located along the seafront just 1 mile from Southend High Street, and is therefore very central for amenities and public transport, with the nearest station being 0.5 miles away.

Site Area: 3.5 acres


Application No: 13/00869/EXTM. Planning permission to develop 216 apartments in 4 blocks, many with direct sea views, a 64 bed hotel (potential for change of use to 27 apartments – subject to planning) and four commercial units within a piazza arrangement.

Block C
7 storey residential (96 flats)

Block D

* The results of a pre-application meeting indicate there is a strong possibility of the Local Authority agreeing an amendment to the existing planning from a 64 bed hotel to private residential. A copy of the pre-planning notes can be supplied on request. Draft plans indicate this could increase the number of residential units by 27.
