King’s Lynn seeks riverfront regeneration design team

  • Comment

The Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk is seeking a design team for an ambitious riverfront regeneration

The winning team will draw up a regeneration concept and delivery plan for King’s Lynn’s historic riverfront stretching from Purfleet Quay (pictured) in the north to Friars Fleet in the South.

Key sites within the regeneration area will include Boal Quay and the Grade II-listed Sommerfeld & Thomas warehouse and grain silos. The Grade I-listed Hampton Court, Hanse House and the 14th century merchant houses of Nelson Street are among local landmarks.

According to the brief: ‘Given its prominent waterfront position, the study area presents a unique opportunity to implement a transformational plan that will enable the development of long-term unutilised sites into a vibrant and economically active waterfront.

‘Recent private investments in the area, such as the Hanse House complex and Marriot’s Warehouse, are a good start, but they need to be followed up by a comprehensive and larger scale regeneration scheme capable of sustaining long-term economic activity.’

The brief continued: ‘The regeneration delivery plan will form a key component of the council’s regeneration plans and future posterity of King’s Lynn by providing a viable concept and implementation strategy for the redevelopment of key sites and vacant properties located on the historic quayside.’

The chosen consultants will develop plans up to RIBA Stage 2 and assess the feasibility of mixed-use regeneration options for the area.

Interviews will be held mid-May and the winner of the estimated £100,000 contract will be announced at the end of the month.

The deadline for applications is 12noon on 5 May.
