    My thoughts are for a Restaurant at the high level as in Plan 4. Being able to see out over Colchester would really enhance the area, especially with the Mercury Theatre in close proximity. A ground floor Bistro/Café as well would be good for the area.
    The building must not be turned into a Museum, what a waste of an extraordinary piece of architecture, we have more than enough of these in Colchester with the Castle, Holly trees, Natural History and the biggest waste of public money the Firstsite Art Gallery. If the Balkerne Trust want to exhibit a permanent site for the pipework etc. put it in Firstsite the last time I went into the building it was empty apart from a couple of old jet engines in the entrance. They could set up an area with all the history of the Water Tower. But please do something to the Tower to bring it into the 21st century. I have tried for 10 years to get the owners of the tower to be able to get plans passed to make it a real Colchester Attraction.
