Plans for multi-storey car park in Rayleigh as part of new proposals
A BUSTLING night time economy, a multi-storey car park and a new supermarket are just some of the ideas for the future of Rayleigh.
Rochford District Council has published the Rayleigh Area Action Plan which lays out the blueprint for new development in the town centre.
The proposals include more bars, cafes and restaurants to attract more evening trade. A new development for Websters Way car park is proposed which will see a supermarket and multi-storey car park built, better public footpaths between the car park, Websters Way, Castle Road car park and the railway station.
There will also be a new public space in the High Street which could see the existing taxi ranks moved to Websters Way.
The plans are currently on display in Rayleigh Library until January 29 and is open between 9am and 5pm Monday to Saturday.
