East Colchester Regeneration Area

Regeneration East banner  






In East Colchester an exciting new waterside community is emerging at the Hythe, the town's former port. The £13 million regeneration programme will create a mixed-use development alongside the River Colne with 100,000 sq ft of commercial space, 2000 new homes and improved transport links.

The transformation of the area is already underway with new housing, employment areas, community centre, nursery and student accommodation for the University of Essex at University Quays.

The University Knowledge Gateway will bring new business opportunities, hotels and leisure facilities.
