A vision for Great Yarmouth

These are exciting times for Great Yarmouth. Over recent years, some important developments have become a reality. Partners from the public and private sectors are working closely together on a range of further ambitious work, shaping projects and capturing investment to support businesses and communities.

The energy-focussed Enterprise Zone, established in 2012 at Beacon Park energy hub and South Denes, has unlocked total investment of more than £46.6m and realised 527 jobs across 24 businesses, which enjoy the benefits associated with being on an Enterprise Zone.

£50m of highway improvements are scheduled to take place over the next 4 years. A third river crossing will help to accelerate business growth in the South Denes and port areas, as well as improving access for residents.

Close to the Outer Harbour and river port, Great Yarmouth Energy Park is being
established to ensure that businesses related to the offshore energy sector continue to have suitable land available to capture investment and growth

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is driving forward the delivery of a Town Centre Masterplan, an exciting commercially-realistic vision to enhance the historic town centre for the 21st century as a destination where more people choose to live, work, invest and spend their leisure time and money.

Meanwhile, a mixed-use riverside development of attractive, vibrant and well-connected neighbourhoods will support this transformation of the town centre and create an enhanced gateway to the town.

The Masterplan offers exciting opportunities to invest in a range of redevelopment projects to transform Great Yarmouth's unique central spaces, and introduce 400 homes, underpinned by a commercially-realistic vision, led by Great Yarmouth Borough Council. 

The Conge is an essential link road between the town centre and railway station. There is great ambition to redevelop this eight-hectare brownfield site into modern commercial, residential and retail premises.
