PLANS to turn Colchester’s Old Police Station into a business centre for the creative industries have received a £500,000 boost.
Arts Council England has decided to award £499,999 to Firstsite to help the arts organisation transform the Grade II listed building on Queen Street into a Creative Business Centre.
Wayne Warner, commercial director at Firstsite, said: “The Colchester Creative Business Centre will regenerate a mostly derelict building within Colchester into a vibrant hub of creativity and support the increasing creative sector within the area."
