Councils seek 18m for projects

King's Lynn is bidding for more redevelopment cash

A bid for money to improve transport and traffic management in West Norfolk is being sent to the government.

It is one of a list of projects which the Borough of King's Lynn and the county council hope will make King's Lynn larger and more prosperous.

King's Lynn has growth point status which means it can call on government funds to help in bringing jobs and better facilities to the town.

The latest bid is for more than 18m for several improvement schemes.

Much of the cash will be spent on traffic and transport projects, regenerating the waterfront plus purchasing more land for employment, green space and community facilities.

More cash will also go into the Nar Ouse regeneration scheme to help businesses planning to relocate there.

The councils will find out how successful the bid has been within eight weeks.
