King’s Lynn town centre businesses invited to help shape plans for its future

Businesses in Lynn town centre are being invited to help to shape plans for its future at a virtual Vision King’s Lynn workshop next month.

The workshop, on Wednesday, September 9, from 5.30pm to 7pm, organised by West Norfolk Council and Discover King’s Lynn, will see businesses asked to share their ideas on topics such as making use of empty units and enhancing the town centre offer.

Activities and improvements in the town centre, including the Town Investment Plan, will be discussed. The Town Investment Plan is currently being developed and through it, Lynn has the opportunity to potentially access £25 million in investment from the Town’s Fund.

The Town's Fund is a one-off opportunity to access investment to transform Lynn and was set up to drive the economic regeneration of towns to deliver long term economic and productivity growth.

The workshop follows on from recent Vision King’s Lynn consultation about consumer and business confidence in the town centre. The findings from these surveys will be shared shortly, and there will be an opportunity for businesses to discuss some of the emerging themes at the workshop.

Graham Purkins, chair of The Town Board which is overseeing the development of the Town Investment Plan, said: “We know that businesses in the town centre, like so many others across the area, have felt the impact of Covid-19 significantly over the last few months.

“That is why it is so vital that we get their views. We want to hear their ideas for what we can do to help the town centre to bounce back from the difficulties caused by the pandemic and thrive into the future.

“I would urge businesses in the town centre to please do join us at this important workshop and tell us what you think – your views are vital.”

Town centre businesses can register attendance by emailing michelle@engaging-people.co.uk or get in touch via the website www.visionkingslynn.co.uk or the social media channels: Twitter: @vision_lynn or Facebook: Vision King’s Lynn. The closing date to register a place is Friday, September 4.
