Who we are

This is a Colchester Borough Council initiative and is being delivered in partnership with its group of commercial trading companies, Colchester Amphora Energy Ltd (CAEL), Colchester Amphora Homes Ltd (CAHL) and Colchester Amphora Trading Ltd (CATL)

With a focus on the council’s strategic priorities of health and wellbeing, economic growth, and improved homes and infrastructure, the companies are structured to ensure profits are returned to the council for the benefit of the people of the borough.

Our vision

Colchester Northern Gateway 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 this significant location crystallises 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.  

Once complete, this flagship complex will cement Colchester’s reputation as a major centre for job creation and a magnet for growth within the region.
