Future of Hillington Square

The proposals

Proposed site layout

The next chapter for Hillington Square

The emerging proposals seek to redevelop the existing blocks Chestnut, Aitken and Norris House as well as the Providence Street Community Centre. We are proposing four new residential blocks which will provide 70 flats of one, two, and three bedrooms. Below many of these homes there will be space for a range of community facilities. We will be communicating with the providers of services at the current Providence Street Community Centre to seek their requirements and help shape the use of these spaces.

The new development will provide a new public square around All Saints Church. We will also provide a series of new routes through the site, which are based around the idea of ‘healthy streets’ – streets which prioritise walking and cycling and community integration. The new proposals will now resurface the existing car parking area off Valingers Road as well as delivering additional on-street parking spaces for public use as part of the site’s redevelopment. The emerging scheme design will also ensure that there will be no through-routes for vehicles between the existing access points into the site off Valingers Road and Providence Street.

You said, we did

Responding to feedback on our previous proposals we received from the local community, stakeholders and King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council we have responded in the following ways:

• Moving the proposed new blocks further away from All Saints’ Church to respect this invaluable heritage asset
• Reducing the massing of the blocks nearest the Church from five storeys to three and four storeys
• Retaining and refurbishing the blocks nearest to Bridge Street and All Saints’ Street
• Providing more parking for residents and visitors

We will provide 70 new flats and three terraced houses with private gardens. All the homes being provided will be affordable to meet a need within the existing community. The dwellings will enjoy plentiful natural light, meet nationally described space standards, and have excellent air quality and minimal noise pollution

All the homes proposed will be constructed to last, using sustainable, locally sourced materials.

We will adhere to the highest standards for energy efficiency and insulation to reduce the carbon footprint of the scheme, as well as reducing running costs for occupants.

The scheme will also provide jobs and training to local people, as well as giving a boost to the local economy.

Our public realm proposals will follow the idea of healthy streets, which gives priority to pedestrians and cyclists, and includes significant landscaping intended to mitigate pollution and encourage mental well -being. A range of safe, secure, and relaxed public spaces will be provided for all residents to enjoy.

We will provide improved car parking ratio, electric vehicle charging provision, and secure cycle parking to encourage sustainable transport.
