Young people want to see more sports and leisure facilities and an area just for them in King’s Lynn.
That is just one of the findings of a survey by the Town Deal Board of 167 16-25 year-olds.
Areas for trampolining, adult soft play and indoor go-karting were top of their list along with a place they could meet up with friends, study and have fun.
Just over a third felt they could not get the kind of work they wanted in the town and want to see more opportunities for work experience, opportunities for graduates and work in the creative industry/arts.
The survey also found only 60 per cent planned to stay in the town for the next five years.
Graham Purkins, Chair of the Town Deal Board said: “We have an opportunity to create more facilities that meet the needs of young people in the town, and other projects, such as the Youth and Retraining Pledge, which will allow us to provide more training and support for young people.
“We want young people to see their future in King’s Lynn, we want them to be able to access the opportunities to which they aspire, and we want young people to feel able to stay here to build their careers. Through the long-term vision we’ve set out for the town, we want to achieve this.
A workshop will now be held with young people who took part in the survey who want to find out more.
Meanwhile a separate survey has been carried out with businesses and traders which found they were keen for a pop-up retail area in the town where businesses could grow.
They felt any scheme should be flexible and help deal with the lack of available space for business growh.
Vicky Etheridge, who manages the towns Business Improvement District (BID), said: “The insight from this survey will help us to develop our pop-ups offer in the town centre.
“We know that pop-ups can provide a really useful tool for businesses who wish to start out, grow, or test a new product and this consultation has confirmed that having affordable space for pop-ups in King’s Lynn could be of value for traders.”
