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.  (

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  (Please be aware that some of the information on the mapping used by NLC is out of date!)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 or by phone 01652 648978.

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