Welcome


The Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community is a joint project between Tendring District Council, Colchester Borough Council and Essex County Council. It is a planned new community, which will be a sustainable and attractive place to live, work and visit. It is based on Garden Community principles.

The Garden Community will provide new housing and job opportunities. There will be transformational infrastructure, such as a new link road between the A120 and A133, and a new Rapid Transit System for new and existing residents. Development will take place over many years with an ‘infrastructure first’ approach to delivery. This will see key facilities and services provided alongside the new homes.

The Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community is part of a long-term vision of the Councils to help meet the future growth of the area in a more strategic way.

The principles, and a Charter, underpinning the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community were originally developed as part of a wider project to propose three Garden Communities across North Essex. We will modify this Charter, in time, specifically for the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community, as the plans evolve. The original Charter document, for reference, can be viewed here.
