Ancient History

Known for its important Roman ruins, Colchester also has an unsung but extensive collection of medieval buildings rivalled by few other places in the UK. This offers enormous potential alongside, highways changes, a mooted residential expansion and the renewal of a retail centre in flux. Working in a multi-disciplinary team including We Made That, HAT Projects, PRD and Steer, Authentic Futures has helped devise a heritage-focused regenerative masterplan that aims to make the enhanced city centre cohere and provide a framework for investment.
