Coastal regeneration will be on the agenda as development sites across Norfolk and Suffolk are showcased for potential investors at a national housing conference this week.

The RESI conference, which is taking place in south Wales, brings together construction firms, developers and local authorities from across the UK.

New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership’s managing director Chris Starkie will be joining a panel session called ‘Time to look again at coastal communities’, discussing regeneration and property opportunities in coastal towns, and the important role local authorities can play.

“Our coastal towns, from King’s Lynn and North Norfolk around to Great Yarmouth, Ipswich and Felixstowe, present opportunities for creative and innovative developments in primary waterfront or coastal locations. We’re keen to meet potential developers and investors who are interested in sharing in the economic success of the East.”

One of the sites being showcased is the King’s Lynn Waterfront Regeneration project. This mixed-use development scheme offers riverside residential development opportunities.

Another is Great Yarmouth Waterfront, which aims to deliver a blend of new homes, employment and retail space.
