Support local businesses, our high streets and thriving arts and cultural scene
Business and Culture are at the heart of Rochford and Southend East. Not only through our retail and creative industries but through the culture and amenities that draw people from across the world to visit, live and work here.
Rochford’s historic villages and royal heritage are a draw to tourists and cultural historians and with its high street, beaches and traditional amusements Southend is a leisure and shopping destination for people from across Essex, London and beyond. I want to celebrate and promote the industries that drive the economy and dynamic life of our towns.
Labour will build an economy for the many, not the few, that supports and builds diverse thriving business and communities.
