Go-ahead for 1,760-home Southend estate revamp despite affordable housing shortfall

Plans have been approved for up to 1,760 homes plus 10,000 square metres of commercial space as part of the redevelopment of a housing estate in Southend-on-Sea, after planners advised that a non-policy compliant affordable housing level and harm to heritage assets was outweighed by the scheme's multiple benefits.
