Maldon District Council is inviting companies and organisations to come forward with new activities, events and concession ideas for its parks and open spaces – including the much-loved waterside Promenade Park.
Maldon District Council Spokesperson said: “Applications open today and close on 6 March, with interested parties required to fill in an online form with the full details of their proposed activity. Applications are particularly welcome for events to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee weekend, sustainable/carbon neutral ideas, and concessions that will provide employment for people in the Maldon District.
“The Council aims to provide an exciting calendar of events and concessions for 2022 that will engage and entertain visitors of all ages; a wide range of possibilities will be considered, including activities for children, al-fresco eating and drinking, and proposals to improve the health and wellbeing of adults, including older people.
“As well as the popular Promenade Park, affectionately known as The Prom, which can attract more than 30,000 visitors in a single weekend, applications are also invited for other council-owned open spaces, including Riverside Park in Burnham-on-Crouch, Oak Tree Meadow in Maldon and Elms Farm Park in Heybridge.”
Before applying, interested parties should read the terms and conditions carefully. A scoring matrix will be applied to each application to assess how proposals fit in with Council priorities, with extra weight being given to projects that employ local residents or are based within the Maldon District. The Council hopes projects will:
Promote civic pride and maintain the District's environmental quality
Reduce impacts of waste disposal and pollution on the environment
Enable future economic investment and new jobs
Support existing local businesses
Enhance and promote the District’s visitor economy
Help to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of residents.
