Businesses in King’s Lynn town centre are being invited to help to shape plans for the town at a virtual Vision King’s Lynn workshop taking place from 5.30pm – 7pm on Wednesday 9th September.
The workshop, organised by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk 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.
The feedback in the workshop will help to inform activities and improvements in the town centre, including the Town Investment Plan. The Town Investment Plan is currently being developed and through it, King’s Lynn has the opportunity to potentially access £25M in investment from the Town’s Fund.
The workshop follows on from the recent Vision King’s Lynn consultation to understand 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.”
