ELECTIONS to the committee of a group set up to co-ordinate the regeneration of the Hythe, in Colchester, are due to take place in spring.

Hythe Forward, a community interest group, was set up last year and aims to breath new life into the former cargo port.

Anyone who lives in the Hythe area can put themselves forward for election.

Residents will be able to vote by buying a share in the group, priced at between £1 and £10.
