West Norfolk economic strategy

Information about the strategy to support economic growth of West Norfolk

An economic strategy for West Norfolk

We are working to support the economic growth of West Norfolk through the development of a West Norfolk Economic Strategy for all our businesses, people and places. This is intentionally timed to coincide with the launch of our new Corporate Strategy and the Norfolk Devolution Deal, which among other features includes new devolved powers, funding and tools for local transport, regeneration, housing and skills.

At the same time, the Norfolk County Council is preparing an economic strategy for the whole of Norfolk. These strategies are purposefully being developed together so they align, with local priorities captured in the Norfolk strategy, and county-wide themes tailored to the local area. One difference between the strategies is their time horizon: the Norfolk Economic Strategy is focused on the next five years, while the King’s Lynn West Norfolk Economic Strategy will take a longer-term view.

The West Norfolk Economic Strategy will be developed during the period January – June 2024.

Below are the included steps to produce the strategy.

The strategy will consider key issues that impact on economic growth including business support and cluster growth, transport, infrastructure, skills, placemaking and regeneration.


To produce the strategies, we are hosting a series of workshops, meetings and one to one discussions focusing on the opportunities, challenges and priorities that the economic strategies should respond to. We want to hear from as many businesses, organisations and stakeholders to help us shape the vision and priorities for our strategy.

We are also developing a new Economic Strategy for west Norfolk as part of our corporate priority to promote growth and prosperity. Whether you live, learn, visit, work, run a business or invest in west Norfolk, we want to hear your thoughts and ideas. Tell us what is important and what you would like to see happening:
