Community Days of Action

News, Reduce, Safer Neighbourhoods

The Community Day of Action programme has been taking place across the Borough since 2008.

Each event brings together a wide range of partnership agencies, organisations, charities, volunteer groups and authorities including Essex Police, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, the DVLA, Colchester Borough Council and many more.

Working in partnership they all take to the streets to raise awareness of locally identified issues and conduct a number of practical, enforcement and engagement activities that are specifically aimed to address them.

Since 2015 Community Days of Action have been hosted in partnership with local community groups on a two event per year basis (Spring and Autumn).

This new process now enables any community members or representatives of the borough to make a difference to their area by submitting a bid to the partnership.
