Welcome to Colchester’s new Northern Gateway
Colchester Borough Council has been inspired to create a place where local people and visitors alike can live, work, relax and shape happy, healthy lifestyles for themselves and their families.
This expansive space, which lies to the north and south of Junction 28 of the A12, is gradually transforming into a new sport, leisure, business and residential destination of regional significance. The opening in 2021 of the multi-million pound Colchester Sports Park, was a major step forward in turning our vision into a reality.
Work is now underway on the construction of the 200,000 sq ft Leisure Park which is scheduled to open in autumn 2023.
With world-class digital connectivity, easy access to the regional transport network, and high-quality urban design, the Northern Gateway will become a thriving location for living, playing, working and doing business.
The Northern Gateway will benefit from an integral digital network to provide ultra-fast broadband to homes and businesses. In addition, the area will feature a carbon-cutting, Renewable Heat Network supplying properties with heat and hot water.
New tree and shrub planting will encourage biodiversity and create attractive green spaces for relaxation and leisure, opening up routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
