Vision of The Southend Party

The Southend Party believes that local government are far better equipped to manage the well-being of its people.  We believe in making practical changes by seeking to take far more control of our tax, health, education, policing, the environment, education and business. 

We intend to be the most powerful political voice in Southend politics, who will demand without compromise the resources and power from central government that we need to fix our City, and transform it into a place where people can fulfil their potential and reach a state of mind that is happy, content, healthy and safe.
