Kings Lynn, Norfolk – Unlocking Brownfield Sites (Heritage Action Zone funding)


The project involved producing development masterplan options for seven sites in historic Kings Lynn, five of which are Council-owned and either under-occupied or used as large-scale car parks. The project considers options for re-providing much of the parking using more sympathetic methods, including relocating long term parking to the edge of town sites, adding a multi-storey car park behind new active frontage development and adding on-street parking spaces within newly landscaped contexts.

The design options provide mixed-use, medium-density, low-rise, residential-led options for the sites, including ground floor commercial uses as well as substantial public realm improvements, within a heritage context. The project included site and context analysis, development scenario options, heritage, archaeology and movement impacts, transport, and wider parking strategy, concluding with development viability and marketing options for each site.
