1:56pm Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in News
THE regeneration of Colchester’s St Botolph’s Quarter has received a £10,000 government boost.
The Creative Coop and Colchester Council’s application for a grant to become a Mary Portas Town Team Partner was yesterday approved by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
The “community mapping project”, supported by town MP Sir Bob Russell, will see locals document the area’s buildings, traders, venues and residents.
