New council administration appointed
A new Conservative administration has been appointed to lead Southend-on-Sea City Council after being voted in at Full Council meeting on 18th May 2023
At the recent local elections, no party gained the required majority to lead the council outright. However, the Conservative Party has 22 seats and have formed a minority administration.

“We all want the best for our new City and this new administration under my leadership will work hard to ensure that we provide stability to the council and move forwards in the best interests of residents, businesses and visitors.”
The new cabinet is as follows:
Cllr Tony Cox,
Leader of the Council - SEND
Cllr Meg Davidson,
Deputy Leader of the Council - Environment
Cllr Daniel Nelson - Economic Growth and Investment
Cllr James Moyies - Adult Social Care, Health, Public Health and Constitutional Affairs
Cllr Kevin Buck - Highways, Transport and Parking
Cllr Helen Boyd - Children’s Services, Education and Learning
Cllr James Courtenay - Community Safety and Public Protection
Cllr David Garston - Housing and Planning
Cllr Derek Jarvis - Arts, Culture, Heritage, and Leisure
