A smart phone application could soon be promoting Lynn town centre if new proposals come together.

Lynn Town Centre Partnership is looking into the possibility to create the app to highlight attractions and businesses in the High Street area.

The app is hoped to be an information portal containing maps and potentially offers to help visitors to the town centre.

Chairman Darren Taylor says the partnership is holding talks with West Norfolk Council about funding the creation of the app.

Mr Taylor said: “A number of towns across the east have already got dedicated town centre apps.

“It would help all businesses which is always what the town centre partnership aims to do.

“Essentially the app would be an information portal to anyone coming to Lynn, who would be able to download it for free.

“It could contain maps, relevant information about what is going on along with details of different businesses and places to eat and drink.

“Instead of having to pick up maps or brochures. They would have all that information at their fingertips.

“It is something we are very keen to explore.”

The idea to create an app was suggested during the King’s Lynn Business Improvement District meetings.

The team was disabanded earlier this year after traders voted against the implementing the scheme.

There are also hopes of adding offers onto the application.
