Massive overhaul of King’s Lynn waterfront: Six days to go until ideas are revealed
There are just six days to go before proposals for the regeneration of the King's Lynn riverfront are revealed.
And people in the town are being urged to have their say on the plans at a special two-day drop-in session.
Specialist development and regeneration consultancy Urban Delivery has been undertaking a delivery plan and working with stakeholders to gather ideas and suggestions for how the riverfront could be developed to make it a vibrant and well-used space.
Their proposals will be on display, in the mobile event vehicle on the Tuesday Market Place, on November 15 and 16, between 10am and 7pm.
People can pop in to have a look, speak to the consultants and provide any comments they have so that these can be considered before any final proposals are produced.

The site being looked at consists of three distinct areas - one which incorporates the Purfleet and King's Staithe Square, one which incorporates the riverfront parking area, pontoons and former grain silos site, and a third which takes in the Nar Loop area.
Alistair Beales, west Norfolk Council's cabinet member for regeneration, said: 'We want to maximise the potential of the riverfront. We know that development on these sites is complex and expensive and profits uncertain which makes it difficult for the private sector alone to redevelop and revitalise such areas.

'By putting together this delivery plan and working out what can actually be delivered, we hope that we can work with partners to regenerate the area, create new homes and businesses, attract more activities and events and create a buzzing and vibrant quayside.
'We believe the area is so important to the town, that is vital we get people's views and opinions on these proposals so that they can be taken into account.'
Once the consultation opens on November 15, proposals will also be available online for comments at www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay
The consultation will close on November 24.
