Reacting to the announcement that Southend will be given city status in honour of Sir David Amess MP, Cllr Carole Mulroney, Leader of the Liberal Democrat group on Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, said:
"We're absolutely delighted, not just for Southend but for Sir David's family too. He pursued this cause with a passion and this is a fitting tribute to remember him by.
Plans for an ambitious project that will pedestrianise and reshape Tindal Square (at the top of the High Street) were signed off by Chelmsford City Councillors at the recent Cabinet meeting.
The redesign, proposed jointly by the Chelmsford City and Essex County Councils, will see the pedestrianised High Street extended all the way to the doors of Shire Hall, restoring the Georgian-era layout of the city centre. The historic square will feature seating, new trees and be available as a space for public performances.
