Residents and businesses are being invited to share their ideas to improve the look and feel of the King Edward Quay area, which will benefit the local community.
Colchester Borough Council has funding to make improvements to the Quay area, through Section 106 contributions, to enhance the feel of the area and reanimate the Quay through a series of events throughout 2020.
Local people are being invited to give their feedback on the Quay – whether they feel the area needs more flower displays or improvements to seating and what events they would like to see take place.
The council’s Community team will be coming to King Edward Quay to talk to residents on Saturday 5 October, 1-4pm.
Cllr Mike Lilley, Colchester Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Communities, Wellbeing and Public Safety, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to work with residents and businesses on improvement ideas for King Edward Quay.
“We would like as many people as possible to get involved to share their views and ideas to help us enhance the area in ways that residents will really benefit from. I would urge anyone that lives or works in the area to go along and have their say or to comment online.”
An online survey is also available for those who can’t attend the drop-in event.
