We are always keen to hear residents' views. Have your say by commenting on any of the consultations below.
Revised Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out what consultation will take place when we are developing and reviewing our planning documents and determining planning applications. It also provides information on the support the Council can give to communities preparing neighbourhood plans or neighbourhood development orders. The Council reviews the SCI on a regular basis to ensure its approach remains efficient and effective.
The consultation is from Thursday 17 June to 5pm on Thursday 29 July.
Proposed Public Space Protection Order – Maldon and Burnham on Crouch Consultation
The consultation will start on Monday 24 May 2021 and finish on Sunday 4 July 2021.
The Council has received complaints of anti-social behaviour in parks and open spaces due to alcohol and psychoactive substance abuse (such as silver nitrous oxide canisters). Areas highlighted as particular concern in Maldon were Promenade Park, Hythe Quay and the adjoining roads spreading up to the High Street. In Burnham-On-Crouch the areas highlighted were Riverside Park, the High Street and adjoining roads.
In response to these complaints, we are considering implementing a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to ensure that alcohol is consumed sensibly and to stop the use of psychoactive substances in these areas.
