Stane Park was given the go-ahead after a successful appeal, following Colchester Borough Council’s refusal for the scheme.

The site will include a McMullen’s pub, Starbucks, KFC, Nandos and Bella Italia, and is due to open in August 2018.

Churchmanor Estates, the developers, has also pledged £350,000 to widen London Road at the Western Bypass junction in a congestion-busting measure.

Once completed by contractors Rose Builders, the site will employ an estimated 260 people.

Stephen Clark, from Churchmanor, said: “It is pleasing to finally start work on our leisure scheme and we very much look forward to its opening next summer.

“We have taken great care over the design layout and landscaping within the scheme and we are pleased to be able to bring these much-needed facilities to the residents of Stanway.

“Rose Builders have carried out several successful developments with us in the past and we are very much looking forward to working with them on this prestigious scheme.”

Steven Rose, for Rose Builders, added: “We are delighted to be working with Churchmanor once again on this scheme and playing our part in the creation of what we believe will be an attractive leisure facility.”
