The business bosses tasked with revitalising Colchester town centre have been revealed.
At its launch, 11 business experts were announced as the elected board members for Colchester’s long-awaited Business Improvement District (BID).
The crack team will spearhead the five-year business-led partnership, which aims to create a better climate for town centre firms by tackling a range of issues on the high street.
Ambitious plans to revitalise the town centre have already been put forward, including specific schemes such as introducing a calendar of co-ordinated events and a new independent business project fund.
Efforts will also be made to make the town centre a cleaner, safer and more welcoming place, whilst the streetscape and night-time economy are also set to be tackled.
