THE new leader of Colchester Borough Council says she wants to hear what residents think of where they live.

Anne Turrell said she wants to get closer to the people of Colchester and launched her initiative yesterday with a sightseeing tour of the town on an open top bus tour.

She said the new council administration was keen to hear the views of residents and give them a chance to put questions to the newly formed council cabinet.

Mrs Turrell said: “It is important, to move forward, that we continually listen to and respond to our residents.
