Research undertaken by Destination Research has shown that the value of tourism to the District is more than £182 million supporting over 3,200 jobs, more than was generated during the Olympic year of 2012.
Maldon District's unique shopping and food and drink offer is the main reason people visit the area and the District Council is positive about future developments and events.
These figures highlight the importance of tourism to the District and support the council's continued drive to boost tourism through a variety of initiatives by working in conjunction with the local tourism industry and Visit Essex.

Maldon District Council have announced that the repairs to Hythe Quay will start on 5th October for 12 weeks. Whilst this work is being undertaken, the Quay will be closed to the public.
The improvements will address a number of issues that have required attention for some years and will also include several improvements that will make the quay a safer place for the public and barge operators alike.
As well as the entire front of the quay being sheet piled, mooring points, electrical supplies, water outlets, lighting, and a bollard and chain fence will all be included. The Council has been careful to ensure the design of the improvements reflects the areas status as a Conservation Area and one of our heritage sites.
