Colchester Northern Gateway

The complex will include a 12-screen cinema with IMAX and 4DX provision, a selection of restaurants, extreme sport facilities and an 80-bed hotel. It is hoped that work will commence in Spring 2017 with completion in late 2018. As a successful commercial leisure destination, Northern Gateway will complement the town centre's rich retail offer and unique historical and architectural heritage.Boy riding bike outdoors Displays a larger version of this image in a new browser window                                                                                                                              

Forming a new gateway into the town from the A12, Northern Gateway will be a superb addition to Colchester's leisure offering. Our chosen partner, Turnstone, has an excellent track record and was chosen amid strong competition for the project.

New and memorable sporting activities will increase local and regional participation, with Northern Gateway emerging as a key centre of sports facilities in the wider East of England region. Its green credentials will be bolstered by innovative solutions to parking, public access and the best use of space. The whole project will be underpinned by effective financial and managerial principles.
