Colchester is being awarded city status as part of The Queen's 70th year as monarch, a move popular among its councillors and less popular among everyone else.

I expect that the only perceivable impact will be a change to the "Welcome to Colchester" signs so that the subtitle now reads "Britain's oldest recorded city".

Actually, it's more likely they''ll read "Britains oldest recorded city", based on the evidence of current signs. I don't suppose apostrophe awareness comes with city status, but I can hope.
