The West Norfolk Investment Plan was developed to guide the effective localised delivery of UK Shared Prosperity Funding across King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
Evidence and analysis of local opportunities and challenges were collated, and stakeholder engagement was undertaken, to identify valuable priorities for investment across West Norfolk. These are summarised in the following diagram.
Our evidence base and rational priorities for King's Lynn & West Norfolk can be seen in the UKSPF Investment Plan.
