Turnstone Estates has released new designs for the £50m leisure and cinema complex set to be constructed as part of Colchester’s Northern Gateway development.


The new proposals include a 12-screen Cineworld, seven restaurants, and three leisure units occupied by a mini-golf course, bowling alley, and climbing centre. “Our revised plans for the Northern Gateway are relatively modest but will help to deliver an even more exciting, state-of-the-art leisure development for Colchester,” said Turnstone Estates MD Chris Goldsmith.

“The changes proposed follow from conversations with future occupiers and will ensure we are providing space that works for them and delivers the best possible experience for visitors.”

Alongside leisure facilities, the complex will also include a 90-bed Travelodge hotel.

The application has been posted online to allow local residents to make comments before the plans are submitted to Colchester Council, with construction to begin in 2022 if the application is approved.
