AN extra 42,800 homes are to be built in Lincolnshire in the next 20 years and now is the time to have your say.
Across West Lindsey, North Kesteven and the City of Lincoln, the Central Lincolnshire Housing Growth Strategy outlines the plans to improve the infrastructure, job opportunities, shops, schools, roads and homes in the county.
Public feedback is being asked for until September 10, with key questions being asked: Does the strategy paint an accurate picture of the housing characteristics and issues specific to Central Lincolnshire? Have the key challenges been correctly identified within the strategy? and does the action plan do enough to facilitate growth and what else could be included?
The allied policies include a call for central funds to support increased house building, develop sustainable communities on ex MOD sites, and a need to support older people who wish to remain at home through an aids and adaptations programme.
The chairman of the Central Lincolnshire Joint Planning Committee and Market Rasen district councillor, Burt Keimach, said: “Given that housing growth is a key element of the sustainable growth we aspire to, I implore everyone to get involved in working together to make great places to live.”
The housing growth strategy – plus the core strategy and all other documents can be found online at http://microsites.lincolnshire.gov.uk/centrallincolnshire/consultations or at council offices across West Lindsey.
