Business Support in Colchester

Colchester is one of the fastest growing districts in the country in terms of population.  Consequently more facilities are needed for this growing population.  Colchester is an investment hotspot with some £3bn being invested to regenerate areas in North Colchester, St Botolph’s in the town centre and The Hythe and also at the Knowledge Gateway at the University of Essex.  Over the next 15 years, the East of England will grow faster than any other region in the country. Colchester has been earmarked as a place to grow in response to this – with 18,800 new homes by 2023 and 14,000 new jobs by 2021. Colchester Borough Council works in partnership with a variety of public and private sector partners to seek, secure and bring this investment to life in the Borough and these pages of the website explain what is planned and what is happening currently and how we can help local businesses.

  • Procurement
    • Colchester Borough Council spends approximately £24 million each year with the private sector. This represents some significant opportunities for a wide range of businesses.
