Our Vision

Land to the north of Colchester has inspired a vision to create a place where local people and visitors alike can choose how they can shape healthy, active lifestyles for themselves and their families; a place where business can flourish and be a part of this new community.  This ambition is now becoming a reality as Colchester’s Northern Gateway crystalises into a new business, sport, leisure and residential destination of regional significance.

With world-class digital connectivity plus instant access to the regional transport network, this development will showcase high-quality contemporary urban design. It will combine exceptional green credentials with a highly desirable environment creating an aspirational place for living, playing, working and doing business.
