Environmental advantages of the Better Queensway regeneration project outlined
Porters Place Southend-on-Sea Limited Liability Partnership are committed to contributing to a greener Southend-on-Sea. The green and environmental benefits included in plans for the Better Queensway (BQ) redevelopment project include proposals outlining how the £4.2million Government’s Get Building Fund (GBF) that has been received for the project, will be spent.
The funding has been allocated to the BQ project through the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP). It is part of a £30 million allocation of funding that has been granted to 14 projects in Essex, for Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock from GBF.

We want to ensure the infrastructure upgrades provide long-lasting environmental benefits for the local community. We’re confident that the combination of all of the different elements that have been proposed collectively deliver a scheme that helps the Borough’s wider response to the climate emergency”.
