The Causeway Regeneration Area is a key regeneration opportunity within Maldon District.
Maldon District Council and Essex County Council are committed to the regeneration of the Causeway Area through the Local Development Plan and the Essex Integrated County Strategy. The aim is to realise the Causeway's economic potential as the primary employment area in the District: to meet the needs of existing businesses, attract new businesses and make the area more dynamic and appealing to investors.
Councillor Mrs Penny Channer, Maldon District Council, Chairman Planning & Licensing Committee said, "The Causeway Regeneration Area has significant potential in relation to the retention and strengthening of existing businesses coupled with enhancement of the skills and employment base, particularly in terms of the distinctive quality of the natural environment, which includes waterfront and canal side locations, and future population growth."
Cllr Frank Delderfield, Chairman of Maldon District Council, will be raising the Commonwealth Flag at the District Council Offices, Princes Road, Maldon at 10am on Monday 9 March, joining more than 730 Commonwealth Flags which will be raised as part of this shared celebration.
Councillor Delderfield said; "I am delighted to be supporting this second 'Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth' initiative which encourages us all to appreciate the value of the Commonwealth and what it represents for citizens around the world. I would particularly welcome any residents to this event who may wish to join us to mark Commonwealth Day".
Opera in the Orchard are thrilled to have Garden Opera returning to perform an Opera Gala on 11th July 2015. The three previous years have been such a huge success, which has been reflected in the many thank you letters they have received.
The evening will be compared by Peter Bridges who is the artistic and musical director of Garden Opera. The singers enact the scene that they are singing in a very friendly and accessible manner. Some of the music will be sung in English and some in the original language and a 6-piece band will accompany them.
