The public have had their say over what should be done to breathe new life into a key part of Norwich city centre - they want to see homes with gardens built, the river properly showcased and more done to encourage cultural activities.

A draft plan is being drawn up for the area around King Street and feedback from the public and businesses has revealed the enthusiasm for a blueprint aimed to attract investment into that part of Norwich.

Norwich City Council and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) had asked people who live and work in the area to help plan for its future.

A series of open days and workshops have taken place in the area, with a project team, led by David Lock Associates, tasked with drawing up a vision and investment plan for the south city centre area.

The initial findings have been identified by the project team and the results of it will be revealed at a two-day public exhibition next week.

Brenda Arthur, leader of Norwich City Council says: “We’d like to thank everyone who took the time and effort to share with us their local knowledge as well as ideas and aspirations.

“We are confident that, by continuing to work together, we can identify projects that could give this vibrant area of the city an extra boost and, in time, attract a wealth of investment and prospects.”

Following the public exhibitions, people have until the middle of next month to give their views on the draft plan.
