Current consultations:

Draft Corporate Plan 2024 - 2028 (Our Vision)

The council is updating its Corporate Plan – a key document which lays out the high-level priorities for the authority over the next four years.

Our Vision, a draft of the new Corporate Plan, has been agreed by TDC’s Cabinet and is now available for the public to have their say.

Following the seven-week consultation, which ends on 25 September, the Vision will be further reviewed in light of the feedback received, before a target adoption date by full council in November 2023.

For more information and to have your say, visit The Council's Corporate Plan.

Consultation on New Measures to Tackle Irresponsible Dog owners in Tendring

A consultation is being held on a planned new measure to tackle irresponsible dog owners in Tendring.

An area-wide Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is being proposed by Tendring District Council (TDC), targeting dog fouling and nuisance dogs off leads.

If it goes ahead, the PSPO would allow authorised council officers to request a dog is put on a lead; and issue fines to owners who do not comply.

It also allows officers to issue increased on the spot fines – of £100 – to those who do not pick up their pet’s mess.

The PSPO would cover all public land – including TDC and town and parish council land – in the Tendring district.

The 12-week consultation is now live, and people can take part, consultation documents and form below.  Paper copies of the consultation form are also available in Clacton Town Hall for people to complete.

Council tenants

If you are a Council tenant there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved.  Visit the tenant involvement page for more information.

Contact your councillor

1. Do you have a local issue which you feel strongly about?

2. Do you need more things to do in your area?

3. Are you worried about crime or the environment where you live?

4. Do you feel that your voice isn’t being heard?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, why not get in contact with the councillor that represents your part of the District? Find your Councillor.

Councillors are elected by the people of Tendring to represent your views and to do something about the issues in our local communities that affect us all.

If you feel strongly about an issue, don’t just sit there and wait for somebody else to do something about it, get together with your friends and contact your councillor to get things changed for the better.
