Community Governance Review for Heybridge Basin – Terms Of Reference And Local Consultation

The District Council is carrying out a Community Governance Review for Heybridge Basin. The area involved forms the Basin Ward of the Parish of Heybridge.

This follows a petition from local residents seeking to establish a separate Parish for that area and for it to be served by a separate Parish Council (instead of Heybridge Parish Council). 

The Review is a public consultation providing an opportunity for local people and other stakeholders to give a view.  The Review will not only look at what the petition seeks to create but will also take into account the implications of any change on the existing electoral and administrative arrangements.  

The Terms of Reference document for the Review on which the local consultations are based has been published here and can be inspected at the offices of the Maldon District Council at Princes Road, Maldon and at the offices of Heybridge Parish Council at Plantation Hall, Colchester Road, Heybridge.

Community Governance Review For Little Totham

The period for comment on this Review has now passed, and consideration has been given to an outcome.  The clear recommendation coming out of this Review is that the Little Totham Parish Council should have its membership increased from five to seven Parish Councillors.  The District Council at its meeting on 13 September 2018 decided to agree this recommendation and therefore the necessary arrangements will be put in place in time for the elections in May 2019.
