Kirton Regeneration Meetings

The 9th Kirton Regeneration Meeting was held this week and as an update some of the issues discussed included –

Removal of the old signage from the library gate to reassure that the area is open at all times. The Town Council do request that priority within the car park is given to library users during library opening times.

Availability of spaces to further increase car parking provision for the town are still high on the list of priorities since these meetings began, as is public transport provision to and from the town.

Options to have lighting provided down Town Hall Passage.

NLC is expected to soon launch statutory consultations around the proposed one-way system around the Market Place and the provision of a mini roundabout at the North Cliff Road / South Cliff Road. King Edward Street and Redbourne Mere junction.

Capacity at the doctor’s surgery and schools are matters that the group are aware of and looking at.

The group are also exploring tourism opportunities for the town and the Town Council has submitted an application to NLC for a Historic Market Town sign directing people to Kirton in Lindsey to be placed on the A15.

The wellbeing provision for the town is in discussion with comparison to the provisions in place in Barton, Brigg & Broughton, Crowle and Epworth.

The safety of pedestrians, horse riders and cyclists along Ings Road is a concern of the group with a number of suggestions put forward for making this area of the town safer whilst encouraging access for all users.

A request has been made for the lowered kerbs and pavements around the town to be looked at to make moving around the town on foot, particularly with pushchairs and wheelchairs much safer and easier. The Town Council is looking to compile a list of priority areas where lowered kerbs are missing or don’t match up at one side of the road to the other – if you would like any areas adding to this list please contact the Town Council to have them considered for inclusion on the priority list.

If you have any views on these proposals, please contact the Town Council via the Town Clerk by email enquiries@kirtoninlindseytowncouncil.gov.uk or by phone 01652 648978.
