TARGET EXCEEDED

Commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War - Call for public subscription

The Town Council is seeking to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War with the planting of an oak tree which will be a living monument and will be mature when the bi-centenary is commemorated.

In addition, the Town Council received a request from the Royal British Legion to fund the purchase of a bench to commemorate the centenary which will be placed to provide a view of the War Memorial. The bench is specially designed and manufactured for the anniversary, and is made from 6mm thick laser cut steel at a standard length of 1600mm, the design incorporates the image of soldiers, crosses and poppies.

The bench does not depict the dates of the first world war making the design still relevant for the soldiers serving and fallen in today’s world.

The Town Council believes that the most fitting way to fund the purchase and installation of the bench is via public subscription, just as the War Memorial itself was in 1920. In this way, everyone who wishes to contribute to the purchase of the bench does so knowingly and willingly and can be assured that all funds donated will be towards the purchase and installation of this bench. The bench will be customised with a stainless steel memorial plaque denoting the public subscription fund raising in 2018. In total the target to be raised is £900.

Donations should be made via the Town Clerk and updates and information will be given regularly on the progress of the fundraising.

Kirton Regeneration Meetings

In October 2017, Kirton in Lindsey Town Council entered discussions with North Lincolnshire Council (NLC) with concerns about the planning proposals for the town and the overall development picture this was creating for the future.

The Town Council asked for a means for all the planned developments to be looked at as one in order to maximise the potential for the town, raising concerns in terms of infrastructure, services and support.

As previously reported, there is already work coming out of these meetings with proposals from NLC for improved parking provision and traffic flow within the town.

You will have recently recieved a letter from our NLC Ward Councillors about the proposal for a mini roundabout at the Redbourne Mere / King Edward Street cross roads. The image (click here) shows the proposed positionning of the mini roundabout.  (http://northlincs.gov.uk/your-council/have-your-say/elections-and-voting/electoral-wards/ridge-ward/)

One of the other current proposals under consideration is the extension of the current one-way system on the High Street.  This would extend the one-way system along the High Street down the side of the Town Hall and along George Street out of the Market Place towards King Edward Street.

The image (click here) shows the existing one-way order in blue and the potential additional orders are shown in red.  (Please be aware that some of the information on the mapping used by NLC is out of date!)

The car park at the library and youth centre is now designated a free public car park, and is marked up with lines in order to maximise the space available.  Signage will follow shortly.

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.

The Town Council has collated all responses received from residents and provided them to NLC for consideration.
