News from Historic England regarding the bid to create a High Street Heritage Action Zone for Lowestoft. This further Heritage Action Zone in Lowestoft has been approved.

This below map shows the extent of the proposed boundary. It follows much of the South Lowestoft Conservation Area boundary (being in a conservation area was a key part of the criteria). The boundary runs from the Surrey Street junction with London Road North to just north of the Carlton Road junction on London Road South in Kirkley. The boundary encompasses the South Lowestoft Conservation Area, the harbour, London Road South and the seafront. It also includes the key commercial areas of Station Square, a portion of London Road North and London Road South, which each contain a number of historically significant buildings.

In terms of the provisional programme of projects, these include:

  • Shop-front conservation grant scheme
  • Community engagement activity
  • Package of business support
  • Connectivity / public realm master planning
  • Conservation area appraisal review
  • Production of a conservation area design guide
  • Capital funding for Lowestoft Post Office regeneration
