Kirton Regeneration Meetings

The 10th Kirton Regeneration Meeting was held on 5th March, here is an update on some of the matters discussed  –

NLC have now taken down 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.

Further discussion took place around the availability of spaces to further increase car parking provision for the town and public transport provision to and from the town.

NLC are looking again at the options to have lighting provided down Town Hall Passage.

NLC is expected to soon launch their statutory consultation around the proposed one-way system around the Market Place.  An addition of a mini-roundabout at King Edward Street / Redbourne Mere will be considered under future works of NLC as the formal consultation via the letter from the Ward Councillors was completed last year.

Capacity at the doctor’s surgery and schools are matters that the group are aware of and looking at, with opportunities for expansion of the doctor's surgery considered at a meeting with the head of planning at NLC and representatives from the surgery.  Funding streams for education in the town were discussed in respect of the building developments which have begun around the town.

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, this is to be considered as a wider piece of cross-county work.

The wellbeing provision for the town is in discussion with comparison to the provisions in place in Barton, Brigg & Broughton, Crowle and Epworth.  A programme of activities is under preparation and should be presented to the next meeting of the group.

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.  NLC are working with the Safer Roads Partnership "Share the Road" campaign in mid-March which is hoped will see signage added along Ings Road as well as the road entrances to the town.

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. A list of 24 areas where lowered kerbs are missing or don’t match up at one side of the road to the other was presented at the meeting with a request to prioritise them and pass them to NLC Highways – if you know of any area of concern 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.
