Integrated Transport Solutions in South Essex (ITSSE) – A joint application between Essex County Council and Southend Borough Council

Vibrant, attractive and huge potential; our South Essex city region covers a densely populated, fast-growing urban area with a twist – no city!

With 90,000 new homes and 70,000 new jobs planned by 2036, within a short geographical span; the region provides all the characteristics and needs of a growing city.  The area is a major part of the Thames Gateway with strong links to London.

Encompassing strategically important establishments, including London Southend Airport, Basildon Enterprise Corridor, two major hospitals and many emerging business and industrial parks; the region is hampered by high congestion levels and several Air Quality Management Areas.
