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 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, and Essex Police Serious Crime Unit.  The next meeting is taking place at the Sunny Sailor on the 13th September between 12.30 and 1.30pm, a free lunch and parking are included and guests will include representatives from

  • the Career Transition Partnership, indicating ways that ex-service leavers could be an attribute to your business
  • and BEST Growth Hub talking about funding opportunities and how they can help you to tap into funding opportunities

Representatives from the Department of Work and Pensions will also be present.
