Cost of living support

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


Workstreams for the strategy

Four workstreams have been identified that support delivery of the Climate Emergency and contribute to some of the objectives contained with the Strategic Plan.

Workstream Supporting the Strategic Description
Protecting the environment Tackling the climate challenge and leading sustainability Principles that support a reduction in carbon emissions and encourage our community to make better choices in the way they travel, to help improve air quality and address the needs of the Council’s declaration of a Climate Emergency, are covered in this workstream.
Delivering good service Growing a better economy so everyone benefits This workstream consists of those principles that support growth, a vibrant town centre, make Colchester welcoming, encourage inward investment and deliver economic growth.
Providing social & financial value Creating safe, healthy, and active communities Delivering homes for people who need them Principles relating to the way the assets owned or managed by us are used, allocated and charged for, to promote healthier lifestyles and provide land for housing and social value, will be contained here. Moreover, principles that deliver good financial value, to save money and where appropriate provide resources to make a positive financial contribution to other activities, are also covered.
Supporting wellbeing & social inclusion Creating safe, healthy, and active communities Delivering homes for people who need them Principles that offer targeted or specific support to help the most disadvantaged residents and communities help deliver this objective.

A discussion and rationale for each of the principles to be developed under each workstream are described below. Combined, these principles form the Parking Strategy.
