Leigh-on-Sea is situated on the northern side of Thames Estuary, only a few miles from the open waters of the North Sea to the east. The port of Leigh-on-Sea is a traditional and active fishing village, the last in the Thames Estuary, well known for the quality of its cockles and other seafood. Quality beaches, wharfs and a nature reserve at Two Tree Island are major features. Leigh is served by a mainline railway station, and there are good road connections to Southend and the A13 towards London.
The wards of Leigh and West Leigh are well developed urban areas home to over 18,000 residents. The area is also home to a growing number of creative businesses and has an impressive independent retail offer and significant café, bar and restaurant presence that attracts visitors from across South Essex and London, with the fishing village and port a big part of the attraction.
The opportunity for the Coastal Community Team is to ensure the sustainability of Leigh-on-Sea as a fishing port through working with the industry, local and regional partners and Government. The industry forms an important economic sector that is interrelated with other sectors locally including hospitality, retail, creative/cultural and heritage.
