Maldon tenders masterplanning and design guidance roles

  • Comment

Maldon District Council is recruiting experts to draw up a new masterplan and design guide for the coastal Essex town

The appointed masterplanner will focus on Maldon’s ‘Causeway Regeneration Area’ which features industrial units and large retail stores; the historic centre which includes a high street featuring 86 listed properties; and the town’s waterfront ‘Leisure Quarter’.

Proposals will be expected to reinforce existing land uses, create jobs, attract investment and safeguard a skilled employment base.

Improved connections to the wider area including the underutilised Battle of Maldon site, new cultural attractions for leisure and recreation, and flood resilient measures will also be required.

According to the contract notice: ‘The masterplan should build directly on the guidance contained in the Maldon and Heybridge Central Area Intermediate Study and the Causeway Regeneration Area Development and Improvement Plan.

‘In particular, it should be specific on where new investment should be directed and where the preparation of more detailed guidance will be required.

‘The appointed consultant will be required to review and build upon the existing evidence base and work undertaken to date in preparing the Strategic Masterplan Framework.’

The design guide author will meanwhile produce a document helping developers, applicants and the council to deliver high quality built environment across the district.

According to the contract notice: ‘The Design Guide should be more than just a wealth of information. It should be concise and easy to use, and should be tailored to Maldon District’s particular characteristics and needs.

‘This includes designing sites that take into account future growth whilst safeguarding and enhancing the natural and historic environment and mitigating and adapting to the potential impacts of climate change.’

The local authority has published two separate contract notices for the masterplanning and design guidance roles which are expected to be worth around £40,000 and £35,000 respectively.

[The deadline for applications for both roles is 29 February]
