Over the past few months, we have been sharing our proposals for five of the six sites in our Asset Delivery Programme with you and listening to your views. The sixth site, number 19 South Street already has the benefit of planning consent.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic we have carried out full and extensive engagement. The feedback received over the past few months has demonstrated just how important this programme is to our residents.

We have achieved this engagement by:

  • Updating this website on a regular basis with the proposals and related information
  • Encouraging you to ‘Have your Say’ about the proposals via an online survey
  • Sharing information through the press and social media
  • Holding two live public webinars and inviting you to ask questions and make comments
  • Sharing recordings of the webinars on the Councils YouTube channel.

During this time, we have also been talking to stakeholders including Rochford District Council Planning Department, Statutory Consultees, Conservation Advisors and Historic England. We have held several meetings with the building users including the Council and representatives from community groups.

Overall, 1,133 pieces of feedback were received. The feedback received on our proposals has been analysed and reviewed by the development team and has been directed to the relevant parties to consider. A summary of the feedback received, the number of responses, the method of communication and the theme of the feedback is included here: Public Feedback. A redacted version of the data that sits behind this summary is available on request via the Contact page.

Many comments have been received about the Mill Arts and Events Centre site and we will be in touch with more information soon.
