In More Detail
The Walton Forum & Walton Community Project
What is the Walton Forum?
The Walton Forum was established in 2001 and has a wide range of members including representatives from local business, services and communities groups. It was formed to steer the regeneration of Walton.
How do you know what we want?
In January 2002, over 250 local people attended a public visioning event in Walton. The subsequent findings of the day formed the basis of the work of the Forum.
What resources do we have?
In the early days the Walton Forum were successful in raising money from the Market Town Initiative funding from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).
Thanks to the funding from EEDA and match funding from our various partners including Essex County Council, English Heritage, Tendring District Council, Frinton and Walton Town Council, they were able to deliver significant projects benefiting the town of Walton, it’s residents, businesses and visitors. Development of a strong fund raising group and shrewd investment of the funds has enabled them to continue the work.
