A tree-lined, pedestrian and cycling thoroughfare, known as The Walk, will run through Colchester Northern Gateway – South. This green and attractive, 600 metre, multi–user route will be accessible to all and will link the residential homes and communities situated to the north-east of the area with the future leisure development located west of the site.
The Walk will be planted with native trees and seasonal shrubs to increase biodiversity and offer visitors all year-round appeal. Associated landscaping, street furniture and facilities will provide wider opportunities for relaxing, socialising, exercise and play.
Installation of fibre lines underneath ‘The Walk’ will enable us to connect households and businesses across the development and beyond with direct access to superfast gigabit fibre broadband.
