New Innovation Centre takes shape

Innovation CentreWest Norfolk’s newest business hub, the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC) is taking shape. Occupying a 1.5 acre site of the Nar Ouse Regeneration Area, the building is to attract investment and provide support for start-up companies and aspiring entrepreneurs in order to deliver economic growth in West Norfolk.
