A video has been created by Colchester Borough Council (CBC) in a bid to encourage businesses to set up or expand in the town.
The film, published on the authority’s YouTube channel, is accompanied by a set of fact sheets showcasing the best of Colchester and case studies of recent success stories.
Adrian Pritchard, chief executive of CBC, said: “Many businesses want to know about the social economic factors when looking at a location for their venture and Colchester has so much to offer with regards to housing, schools, leisure and retail.
“Whilst embracing our heritage we need to move to a more commercial position for our aspiring town and this video is the first step in this important piece of work.
“Colchester is no longer a small market town.”

“The video is intended to whet their appetite and ensure Colchester is on their radar. We are incredibly proud of our town.”
