The planners have been turning their backs on the Golden Mile, the famous Lights and 'the longest pleasure pier in the world,' and concentrating on factories, office blocks and ultra-modern shopping precincts.

If the Government decide to build it' at nearby Foulness, Southend could well become Britain's first Air City and a major launching pad for our international trade.
