Cultural Development Survey

Make sure your voice is heard!

I want to make my goal of Southend being City of Culture for 2029 a reality, but I need everyone's help to make this happen!

Like you, I love Southend and am always looking for ways I think we can improve our CITY even further.

I have produced a survey in which, you, the constituents, can show me what you think we can do to ensure Southend is the City of Culture for 2029.
