Hay Hill project

Hay Hill consultation - now closed

Hay Hill, formerly the marketplace for hay and other goods brought in from the surrounding countryside, is now one of the largest urban open spaces in the city centre and is a key public space on the route between Chantry Place and Norwich Market. Hay Hill’s position in the city means it has huge potential and we want to make sure we make the very best use of this space to benefit the city as a whole.

With this in mind a business case was drawn up to apply to the government’s Towns Fund to enhance the area. The business case set out reasons why we felt a public realm project at Hay Hill would benefit the city, and funds were subsequently awarded to the city council to deliver improvements.

This project is one of eight in the city to be funded from the government’s £25 million Towns Fund, which was awarded to us in 2020. Find out more about the Town Deal.

How to comment

The consultation (which ran from Monday 28 February to Friday 25 March) is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part.

What happens next

This consultation is focussed on gathering information on how the existing space is used and the initial ideas for the area. We will now carefully consider all responses and report back to the Towns Fund Board later in the year. The Board will then decide how to proceed with the project.
