People will be able to have their say on draft proposals for the development of the riverfront area of King's Lynn on 20 and 21 November.
The Nelson Quay development will include high quality public spaces, homes and commercial space. It is designed to transform this brownfield site in keeping with its historic setting.
Architects Graeme Massie, Bidwells, AECOM and project officers from the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk will be on hand to answer any questions and explain the proposals.
Pre-work, surveys and technical studies have been, and continue to be, undertaken on site in preparation for the submission of a planning application in February next year. The project team have already spoken to stakeholders and residents groups and are now seeking the views of residents, visitors and businesses on the draft proposals.
The exhibition trailer will be in the Tuesday Market Place on Tuesday 20 November from 11am to 6pm and on Wednesday 21 November from 9am to 5pm.
Cllr Alistair Beales, cabinet member for Regeneration, said: 'This is a major project for the town, that will really transform the riverfront area. We have had lots of discussions with various stakeholders and hope that the proposals are heading in the the right direction. We now want to see what other people think so that final adjustments can be made before we submit the scheme for planning permission. I would urge people to come to the exhibitions so that they can ask the experts any questions they have and find out more about the overall development.'
If you can't attend either of the sessions, you can view the exhibition materials online and leave comments by visiting west-norfolk.gov.uk/nelsonquay. The online consultation opens on 22 November and closes on 6 December.
