About us


The Council's Communications and Marketing Team acts as an in-house agency looking after all service communications priorities, new campaign and marketing initiatives. 

We have also been chosen to look after the communications and marketing needs of a number of the Council's partners including Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) and the North Essex Parking Partnership (NEPP). 

If you work with the Council and would like to talk about commissioning some marketing expertise please contact the Communications and Marketing Manager for an informal chat.
