Clacton Civic Quarter

Government notified the Council in January 2023 that it had been successful in its Clacton LUF bid for:

Clacton Hub:  creation of a brand new skills and learning hub, bringing together the Adult Community Learning centre and the Library, with proposals for the University of Essex’s new Centre for Coastal Communities to join the building.

Carnarvon Terrace: delivery of 28 much-needed well-designed new homes, improvements to the existing carpark, and creation of new ‘maker space units’ for retail entrepreneurs.

The funding has conditions on it detailing themes and areas for which it must be spent; for example, the Brownfield Land Release Fund which paid for demolition of Carnarvon House, must be used to support at least some housing delivery.


Residents are now asked to have their say over the elements of the Clacton’s Civic Quarter scheme that are being led by Tendring District Council (TDC).

These include the design and layout of the 28 new homes at Carnarvon Terrace following the demolition of the dated Carnarvon House office block, in Carnarvon Road, last year.

The plans also include improvements to the existing High Street car park and the creation of mixed-use community space, which includes the creation of new units for entrepreneurs. The space will be next door to the proposed Clacton Hub.
