Keep it Clean

If shops have been shut for a while and are looking a bit scruffy, we often write to the landlord via the estate agents or council to ask them to clean the windows and sometimes this is successful. The landlord of Nos 209/211 kindly arranged this clean within a week, complete with blue sky and no rain!

Full of Potential

Sometimes there are long term business closures such as Blockbusters Corner 358-364 London Rd, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 7HZ 


There is no apparent agent dealing with any sale, so the council was the only hope of contact with the landlord. This is often a long ongoing process, but with their support, can yield results eventually.

In May 2021 a Section 215 Notice was served on the owner, who has recently overseen some emergency repairs. We do not know what the long term plans are for the building yet.

Calling all Landlords

The success of our high streets involves all parties, including landlords. Many of those who are business owners do engage with other stakeholders in the area.


We aim to involve all landlords including those who do not live locally. In March 2021 we delivered our newsletter plus this business card to every business owner, manager and staff. An additional letter and  card was provided to business owners to pass on to their landlord so they could stay in touch.
