Caistor’s Neighbourhood Plan has become the first in Lincolnshire to reach the formal pre-submission consultation stage.
The six-week consultation process for the plan, which encompasses a vision for the future of the town, began on Monday, November 11.
The Chairman of Caistor Town Council, Coun Steve Millson, confirmed the importance of the Neighbourhood Plan for the future of the town. He said: “Caistor may only be a small market town but we are becoming well known for being proactive and progressive. This is evidenced by the fact that we were selected as one of only a handful of UK communities to pilot the government’s new Neighbourhood Plan scheme.
“In essence, this means that we are privileged with being able to have a say, as a community, in the destiny of Caistor in terms of how it will develop and look in the future.”
The plan can be viewed at Caistor Town Hall, Multi-Use-Centre and the Arts and Heritage Centre or online at www.caistor.net and on the West Lindsey District Council website.
An opportunity to discuss the plan will also be available at the Caistor Food Fair on December 14,
