Short Wyre St wayfinding artwork receives Planning approval

We are excited to reveal that the first of our artist designed wayfinding sculptures for Our Colchester BID and Colchester Borough Council, has now received Planning approval. We anticipate that fabrication will start soon, pending further permissions from ECC Highways, with delivery expected in May.

Sited at the junction of Short Wyre St, Queen St and St Botolph's St - one of the entry points to the independent 'lanes' - a part of the medieval town layout which was overlaid onto the Roman street grid - Nicola Burrell's design celebrates the distinctive identity of the streets and invites visitors to explore further, as well as acting as functional signage in a location where existing signage is inadequate.
