Causeway Business Forum

The Causeway Business Forum is a free employer-led group open to businesses of all sizes and sectors trading in the Heybridge and Causeway Area of the Maldon District. Officially set up in January 2018, it meets on a bi-monthly basis on a Thursday lunchtime to discuss initiatives and strategies to support economic growth. Maldon District Council Economic Development Team provides all secretariat support and the group invites along organisations that can provide support to their ideas. Subjects that have been looked at so far include skills and skills shortage vacancies, cyber security, funding, Ultra-Fast Broadband and business rate relief.  Guests have included the Department of Work and Pensions, the local careers leads at the Plume School, CI Business Solutions (the commercial arm of Colchester Institute offering business services), Maldon District Council Director of Resources, Essex Police Serious Crime Unit, Essex Superfast Broadband, Anglia Ruskin University and University of Essex Business Services, Best Growth Hub and representatives of Funding initiatives.  Businesses take it in turn hosting the meetings.
