Vision King’s Lynn

WELCOME TO VISION KING’S LYNN

Vision King’s Lynn is the collective name for our investment, funding, and plans for King’s Lynn.

On this site you will find information about our emerging Town Investment Plan, a plan which will potentially help us to access £25m of Town Deal funding that has been allocated by the Government.

You will also find details of other investment and programmes including the Future High Streets Fund and High Street Heritage Action Zone which will bring further investment into the town centre.

THE OPPORTUNITY

We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to access investment to transform King’s Lynn so it becomes a place of choice and fulfils its potential as a sub-regional centre.

This is an opportunity that could create many more opportunities for places and people in King’s Lynn and the surrounding area, which will enhance the local economy.

By working collaboratively with local businesses, the community, and statutory partners we can build on the area’s strengths and make it a place where businesses choose to locate and people thrive.

THE TOWN DEAL

King’s Lynn has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to put together an effective and ambitious Town Board and develop a vision and Town Investment Plan to potentially access up to £25m from the Government for projects (or interventions) that will  deliver ‘’economic productivity through urban regeneration, planning and land use, skills and enterprise infrastructure and connectivity’’.

A WORD FROM THE CHAIR

The Town Deal initiative provides a valuable opportunity to enhance the long-term economic outlook and growth of King’s Lynn.

By bringing together a widespread dynamic team for the Town Deal Board, including the local council, businesses and support from our MP, we have the perspective and input to ensure the funding is used for maximum benefit.

As a local resident, and someone building a business and raising a family in King’s Lynn, I’m a keen supporter of opportunities and initiatives to drive our prosperity and promote King’s Lynn as a vibrant place to live and work.
