King’s Lynn has been designated Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) status by Historic England. HAZ status means Historic England will work with us, providing training and access to grant funding. We will identify sites and buildings with development potential and historic importance and ensure that refurbishment or new development reflects the local character. We will look creatively at new economic uses for underused historic buildings.
Some key sites in the town centre have already been identified, including Nelson Quay, where funding could be levered in to support appropriate development. Nelson Quay has been identified for mixed-use development, and a masterplan has already been produced for the site.
