Today we gave a very special welcome to twenty-one town planners from Changsha city in Hunan province in China. They came to Colchester to find out how archaeological remains and historic buildings on redevelopment sites are managed and protected through our planning system. Two Colchester planners (Jess Tipper and Alistair Day) outlined the principles and processes involved and the Roman circus provided a case study for the day. We set the background with an illustrated account of the history of Colchester.
