Plans of how the Hillington Square could look have been revealed for the first time. 

Freebridge Community Housing have unveiled their proposed plans for the final phases to the  regeneration project.

It follows completion of the first four phases at Millfleet Court, Valentine Place, Colby Court and Eldridge Court.

The unveiling of the plans begins a month-long period of consultation with the community before they are submitted to the Borough Council for planning approval.

Tony Hall, Freebridge's chief executive, said:

"Like organisations across the country we have been managing the situation in respect of Covid-19 from day to day, adapting the way we work in order to allow us to continue to provide much needed services to the residents that need them, while at the same time ensuring that that our priority continues to be the health and safety of our customers and workforce. 
"Thankfully we've also been able to continue to work on longer-term plans and projects including these proposed final plans for the redevelopment of the Hillington Square estate in the heart of King's Lynn."

Andy Walder Freebridge chairman, said:

"Despite the current circumstances we are very excited to be able to let everyone see our proposed plans for the remaining work still to be done at Hillington Square. The project had been paused towards the end of last year to allow us to fully investigate the options available to us and we've used that time well.

"The final plans reflect our desire to offer a better mix and variety of housing on the estate and we feel this will result in ensuring that Hillington Square is a great place to live for many years to come."
