Cost of living support

Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.

Colchester Town Centre Masterplan

Businesses, residents, and visitors will have the opportunity to input into an exciting new vision and masterplan for Colchester town centre.

Colchester Borough Council, in partnership with Essex County Council, are developing a new masterplan for Colchester's city centre. This plan will set out a vision for how the city centre should develop and change, and how to make it easier to travel into and around the city centre.

To help develop the masterplan, we want to hear from those who live, work, do business and visit the city centre.

Colchester City Centre Masterplan

The masterplan for Colchester city centre will identify key areas of growth and will provide a new framework for development, defining opportunities for change and prosperity.

Colchester Borough Council, in partnership with Essex County Council, will be actively engaging with those who live, work, do business and visit the city centre, to create an overarching plan, which capitalises on the unique character and heritage of the area and identifies opportunities for future growth.

As part of the planning stage, authorities will consider the evolving new ways of working, shopping habits and leisure time. This will include active travel habits, public transport, and access to the city centre from wider Colchester.
The Borough and County Council are seeking to appoint consultants to help assist with the scheme, with the aim to deliver a comprehensive plan by the end 2022.
