Design ideas for the future of historic community buildings in the heart of Wells will go on public display for the first time next week.

RH Partnership Architects were selected last month to develop a feasibility study for revitalising the Maltings and the neighbouring Sackhouse building.

And the consultancy team will present its initial research findings and a number of design options at a public meeting in the Maltings, Staithe Street, at 7.30pm on Friday, December 4.

The young people of Wells are also invited to a special meeting at the venue at 4.30pm on Thursday, December 10 where they will be asked for their thoughts on how they could get involved in the project.

RH Partnership was appointed by a regeneration steering group including representatives from town, district and county councils, the Benjamin Foundation and the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

Steering group chairman Peter Lynn said: “This is an exciting opportunity for everyone to see the results of the early consultation and the sort of design options that are being suggested for the Maltings complex.

“We would welcome people's thoughts on how the building can be best used for the future of Wells and everyone who lives here.”

The design, research and consultation activities are expected to last three months. Funding for the study was helped by a £25,000 grant from the Sea Change Fund and financial support from the North Norfolk Community Partnership and North Norfolk District Council.
