A vision for St George’s Guildhall will be developed over the coming months with a number of partners set to work together to outline a shared ambition for the much-loved theatre.
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 Town Investment Plan along with details about the Town Deal Fund, £25m of which has been offered to King’s Lynn to fund a range of projects which will benefit the town, strengthen the local economy, and help secure the town’s future as a place of choice to live, work and visit.
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 Investment Plan features three themes. The Town Deal projects fit within these themes as follow:
Innovative, growing business and skilled workforce
Multi-user community hub
Youth and retraining pledge
St George’s Guildhall Complex
School of Nursing
Sustainably connected town
Active and clean connectivity
Historic riverfront and repurposed town centre
Town centre repurposing
A WORD FROM THE CHAIR
We have been offered £25m of Town Deal Funding which provides us with an 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.
