Public seating

Due to a high demand, the waiting list for memorial benches is unfortunately closed.


Tendring District Council welcomes donations of memorial benches to be installed on its areas of public open space along our seafronts.

The schemes are for residents and non-residents and wherever possible we will try to accommodate individual wishes.

We are improving our public seating where possible.  We welcome any ideas you may have and will continue to develop this scheme.
