A public drop-in event for the East Norwich masterplan, which is being developed to guide the future regeneration of the area, is taking place on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 July.
Held at the historic Carrow Abbey in the grounds of Carrow Works, people will have the opportunity to learn more about the process and speak directly to those involved.
The brief for the masterplan has a vision which includes the creation of a highly sustainable new quarter of the city, with the potential to harness a range of economic, social and environmental benefits.
Consultants, Avison Young, Allies + Morrison, Hydrock and RPS, are working on producing the masterplan for the area – which is being steered by the East Norwich Partnership (ENP) – a public-private body composed of a number of key stakeholders. The work is being funded from a mixture of Town Deal funding from the government, as well as public and private funding from members of the partnership.
Chair of the East Norwich Partnership, Cllr Mike Stonard, said: “East Norwich presents the city with a regeneration opportunity that could be transformational. Developing a masterplan to inform our decision-making going forward is crucial to its success.
“We’re very much still in the listening and learning stage – this drop-in event forms part of this process, as well as being a fantastic opportunity to informally meet the team involved and ask any questions. I’d urge people to come along if they can.”
Drop-in event details:
- Friday 23 July: 14:30 - 18:30
- Saturday 24 July: 10:00 - 13:00
