YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Here you’ll find the answers to some frequently asked questions about our emerging Town Investment Plan and all our Vision King’s Lynn activities. Have a question too? You can send it in to us via our Contact page.
Why do we need a Town Deal Board, won’t it be just another talking shop?
A requirement for agreeing the funding with Government is the establishment of a Town Deal Board. The vision and strategy for the town will be defined by the board.
The board will be responsible for developing and agreeing an evidence-based Town Investment Plan, for developing a clear programme of interventions and for co-ordinating resources and influencing stakeholders. All of which will be essential for finalising a Town Deal with the Government.
The Government expects the board to have representation from all tiers of local authority, Members of Parliament, local businesses, the Local Enterprise Partnership, Business Improvement District, DWP, hospitals, cultural institutions, housing associations and arms-length bodies such as Historic England.
We are delighted to have secured a strong and diverse Town Deal Board for the town.
