£40 million cliffs museum development to be part funded by controversial car park

April 30, 2018 by Leigh-on-sea.com

The proposed £40 million cliffs museum development in Southend will be partially funded by a controversial multi-storey car park.

The plans, which will see a museum built dedicated to the history of the Thames and the maritime history of the Thames Estuary, were first proposed approximately ten years ago, but the money for the project, has failed to be raised to date by Southend Council.

A shortage of parking in South Southend was identified so to help generate the money for the project, Councillors have decided to put a temporary multi storey on the museum site.  Once enough money is raised, the car park will be replaced with the proposed museum.
