As part of the Better Southend Initiative, the seafront enjoyed a £25 million face lift recently, welcoming a more cosmopolitan look and feel to the esplanade, extensive beach front upgrades and pavement and road extensions. Southend Airport has seen a further £100 million investment, including a new terminal and train station, and now offering flights to a number of European destinations.
As well as a thriving tourist industry, Southend is seeing massive growth in aviation and medical technology. A three-way local partnership including Anglia Ruskin University is developing new employment space adjacent to the airport to support the medical technology sector. The wider site has potential to provide for over 7,000 jobs. This builds upon the longstanding presence of Olympus KeyMed and Southend University Hospital. Advanced engineering within the aviation maintenance repair and overhaul area is growing due to recent airport investment.
