Wes t Lindsey District Council has promised to “review” Market Rasen’s services and “address” infrastructure issues - if new housing developments go ahead.

The announcement comes after residents said in the Rasen Mail last week that they were worried the town had reached “bursting point” and did not have the infrastructure to cope with an influx of new homes.

Eve Fawcett-Moralee, Strategic Lead for Economic Development and Neighbourhoods at West Lindsey District Council said: “Services will be reviewed if the council feels there is a need, but in the meantime we welcome inward investment to improve Market Rasen and the surrounding villages.

“The Council is also working with the Central Lincolnshire planning unit to develop a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which will seek to address infrastructure requirements.

“The CIL will go out for public consultation in tandem with the local plan.”
