Sadly, until they do something about the price of parking in Colchester this is the way it is going to go with shops closing. When I go to Maldon it is £1.60 for up to 3 hours, leaving plenty of time for shopping in the mix of national and independent shops, and have lunch. I never even have a coffee in Colchester as the extra parking is the same price as the coffee.
