Colchester Northern Gateway
The proposed scheme forms part of the overall Colchester Northern Gateway (CNG) Vision which is to create a high quality, highly sustainable housing, employment, and leisure destination at one of the primary gateways to the town centre and this has been reflected by the areas designation in the draft Local Plan as a primary economic and growth area.
Growing Places Fund
The Growing Places Fund (GPF) was established by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (formerly the Department for Communities and Local Government) and the Department for Transport (DfT) in 2011. The aim of this funding is to unlock economic growth, create jobs and ‘kick-start’ house building at stalled development sites.
Through the GPF Round 1 awards, a total of £48.705m GPF was awarded to 13 capital infrastructure projects across the LEP area.
