Healthcare & Retirement Living Campus
The vision to create a Healthcare and Retirement Living Campus at Colchester’s Northern Gateway received outline planning consent in 2021. The proposed new campus aims to meet the growing need for high quality retirement housing and care provision in north Essex and south Suffolk and will comprise up to 300 older people’s homes, a private hospital, a 75-bed care home and medical centre.
The Northern Gateway is fast becoming a new healthcare, sport, leisure, business and residential destination of regional significance. The integration of the 5 hectare (12.4 acres) Healthcare and Retirement Living Campus will enable increased support for older people living in and around the City to lead healthy and active lives.
Colchester Amphora Trading, which is project managing the regeneration of CNG on behalf of CBC, has appointed JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle) to market the 5-hectare (12.4 acres) site to prospective purchasers. The land is now under offer (subject to contract and respective board approvals).
