A REGENERATION strategy is up for scrutiny from the public over the coming weeks.

Maldon District Council has prepared a draft North Quay development brief strategy for the North Quay in Fullbridge, Maldon.

The public can give their opinions on the idea until March 20.

A council spokesman said: “A policy in the Maldon District Local Development Plan sets out the key projects for the Maldon and Heybridge central area masterplan.

“The adopted masterplan has 18 key projects and a project priority programme to deliver economic growth and environmental enhancements over the next nine years to 2029 that includes the North Quay regeneration.”

The draft plan meets key masterplan objectives to improve connectivity, identify development opportunities for new employment space and to create new jobs.

It is also designed to stimulate growth at the River Chelmer and Heybridge Creek frontages, as well as looking at flood resilience and off-road walking and cycling routes. More details at maldon.gov.uk.
