Young people and local businesses are running out of time to have their say in feedback which will help shape the future of King’s Lynn. 

Sixteen to 25-year-olds have been asked to share their views on what they’d like to see in the town, what is missing and their thoughts on career opportunities in King’s Lynn by taking part in an online survey.

Respondents can also enter a prize draw to win shopping vouchers by taking part in the survey at  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/72MFRQQ

Business owner Harry Seaton, 24, managing director of Fluential, in Lynn, has urged people to take part.

He said: “It’s definitely tough, as a young person, to feel like you have a voice in decisions as important as spending millions of pounds on renovating the town, but this is not just a box to be ticked, which is why I am asking for your help. 

“It takes no time at all plus you could win one of six £50 high street vouchers.” 

At the same time, a survey is still running for business owners, people thinking of setting up on their own or individuals who are looking to take a hobby to the next stage.

This online survey can be completed at:  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7CQ8NJX

Vicky Etheridge, manager of Discover King’s Lynn said: “Pop-up spaces present an exciting opportunity for budding businesses to showcase their work and get ideas off the ground, and for established businesses to try out a new product or service. And, we know from public feedback that there is a desire to see these spaces in town.  

“To develop these spaces, we want to hear the views of businesses and potential traders, and listen to them to understand their requirements, and what type of spaces they would like to see in the future.”

Feedback from the surveys will help shape plans for projects outlined in the Town Investment Plan for Lynn, which has been allocated £25m in government funding as part of  the Town Fund scheme.

Both surveys close at 5pm on Sunday.
