We have been working with Colchester City Council to improve Trinity Square, one of the most historic churchyards in the city centre, and we're now consulting on the designs. The aim of the project is to create an oasis-like public garden in the heart of the city, as a place for people to relax, meet friends, eat lunch and enjoy a moment of calm. The design approach is light-touch, changing as little as possible while making the churchyard accessible and usable for all and improving the setting of the Grade I listed church.
We are holding an on-site consultation alongside members of the Council team this Saturday 20th May, 10am-2pm, and there is also an online survey running from 16th May to 16th June 2023, where you can find out more and comment on the proposals.
We have worked closely with Historic England, Colchester City Council's planning, heritage and tree officers and specialist arboricultural consultants to develop the design. The project is part of the Town Deal projects funded by central government, which will transform many important spaces and buildings in the city centre, including our work at St Nicholas Square.
