For some months now we have seen a rather peculiar construction in the process of being built on Ouse Nar Way in King’s Lynn.

It’s called the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre, a state-of-the-art business hub and we are told it is something that will set West Norfolk alight. But the only knowledge we have are a few well chosen words and I would like to have more detail. I’m sure there are many like me who would like to know exactly how this building will deliver the goods . One of the very first innovations could have been to build the car park before the building as the sight of 30 or 40 vehicles parked on the footpaths for several weeks didn’t look very well organised or innovative.

I find it strange that the signage on the building can only be seen when leaving town. One might have thought that it would have been better if the logo had been presented to those coming into town. I’m afraid the building leaves a lot to be desired from a design point of view – it has the appearance of a beach aircraft carrier or a ski slope. As a considerable sum of tax payers’ money has been expended on this enterprise, perhaps someone could explain exactly how it will deliver the goods.
