If you are concerned that a business is not following government regulations, you can report the issue using the online form.

You cannot make an anonymous report to us, however we will not share your name or contact details with the business you are reporting.

Before you start

Check the Government’s regulations before you start your report - local restriction tiers for businesses and venues.

This form is to report local businesses or venues in the Colchester borough only. If you would like to report an issue with individuals or groups not following COVID-19 measures, visit Essex Police and use their online reporting form.

You can also report a breach by a business to Trading Standards.
