Following our work in 2018 on Colchester's Key Public Spaces, HAT have been engaged by Colchester Borough Council to deliver the transformation of St Nicholas Square into an exciting new public space. Due to complete later in 2021 and funded by the Accelerated Town Deal fund, it will create a flexible and attractive square, with more space for seating, market stalls and outdoor events.
Councillor David King, Portfolio Holder for Business and Resources said: “I am looking forward to the opportunity to present initial plans for what promises to be a very exciting new public space. This investment will be a real boost for local retail and hospitality businesses and I am extremely pleased work on this project is moving forward."
We have been working hard, behind the scenes, with local businesses and user groups to develop designs that are both practical and beautiful.
St Nicholas’ Square is a wonderful and historic space but it has not been used to its full potential for some time - so we are excited to help it become a vibrant space for the future.
