Secretary of State approves Southend Airport expansion

The development of Southend Airport has been given the seal of approval by Secretary of State John Denham. The future of the airport was thrown into question by government intervention in January, in which Mr Denham reviewed the situation personally.
Cllr Anna Waite, who is responsible for transport and planning, told BBC News: “I am extremely pleased the Secretary of State has vindicated the careful consideration given to this application by the development control committee.“It took a great deal of time and effort to produce the balanced report presented to the committee which reflected the views expressed by the various interested parties.“The airport expansion will bring not only travel opportunities but much needed jobs.”

"Great Hotel"

Ilfracombe House Hotel

Review from: Mrs_DH

This Hotel was a really good find. The rooms are comfy, the Staff are really friendly and the food is very nice. We had a nice dinner before going to see a show at the Cliffs Pavilion, which is just a short 5-7 minute walk away.

The car park is pretty small and is situated at the back of the Hotel. We park the car on the street and did not have any problems.

The Hot and Cold breakfast in the morning is buffet style and was really tasty. I would definitely visit the Hotel again.

    ``An Unexpected Delight`` Ilfracombe House Hotel
    Review from: PennyLondon  
    Feb 17, 2010 | Trip type: Couples

    The staff were very friendly and approachable in this hotel and nothing was too much trouble. The room took us by surprise as it was much nicer than we had hoped. We had a four poster bed in our large, luxury double room and quality furnishings. The bathroom too was always spotless. It was a very big and very comfortable room with lots of light from the large windows.
    It was the perfect location for us as it was just a short distance to Southend town centre and to the beachfront and it was also only about 6 - 7 mins walk to Cliffs Pavilion.
    I liked the hot and cold buffet breakfasts in the mornings and I also loved the glamorous chandeliers hanging from the ceilings! It is obvious that care that has been taken to make this hotel a real pleasure for guests.
