The North West Norfolk Catchment covers an area of 1007km2 which is almost entirely within Norfolk. It has a population of approximately 109 000 which is predicted to increase to approximately 127 000 by the year 2006. Forty percent of the population is located in the three main towns of Kings Lynn (35,135), Downham Market (5,965) and Hunstanton (2,440). Kings Lynn is the major urban centre within the catchment. It is the nodal point for the trunk and primary road network in the catchment which provides links with Swaffham, Downham Market and Hunstanton. There is also a main railway line from Kings Lynn to London.
