Over the next 15 years, the east of England will grow faster than any other region in the country. Colchester has been earmarked to grow sustainably in response to this - with 18,800 new homes by 2023 and 14,000 new jobs by 2021

Colchester has an exceptional heritage, but some areas have become run down. We now have the opportunity to regenerate these areas as the town grows creating vibrant new communities, mainly on brownfield sites.

New jobs, homes, shops, transport links and community facilities will be created across four major regeneration areas - the Town Centre, North and East Colchester and the Garrison.
