In 2008, the Borough Council developed a masterplan for Hunstanton Town Centre setting out opportunities to improve the quality of the built environment and stimulate economic development. The current focus of the regeneration is to enhance the attractiveness of the public space to assist in maintaining a vibrant shopping and social destination all year round. After consultation with stakeholders, residents and businesses, the surrounding roads and green spaces were identified as being a priority in this enhancement project which would be part funded by the Mary Portas scheme. The Council invited landscape architecture teams to bid for the redevelopment of ‘The Spinney’ an existing green space in the town centre. ELDs proposal included a new square and performance area, with space for market stalls and events on a new shared surface.
