South Holland

Boston and South Holland residents urged to give views on future development sites

This story is over

Residents in Boston and South Holland are being encouraged to have their say on preferred sites for development in the area over the next 20 years.

A new local plan is being prepared for South East Lincolnshire (the areas of Boston Borough Council and South Holland District Council) to guide the development and use of land in the area up until 2036.

The South East Lincolnshire Local Plan is being produced by Boston Borough Council, South Holland District Council and Lincolnshire County Council working in partnership.

A public consultation is being held from Friday, July 15 to Friday, August 12 which will see a series of drop-in sessions held across the area.

Responses to the consultation will be taken into account in finalising the publication version of the local plan.

Councillor Peter Bedford, Chairman of the South East Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee, said: “This chance to comment on the preferred sites proposed in the local plan is perhaps the most important as it is the last opportunity before it is re-drafted in preparation for its final version for examination by a planning inspector.”

Drop-in events will be taking place between 3.30pm – 7.30pm with the exception of the South Holland Centre event which takes place from 11am – 3pm.

Anyone is welcome to attend any of the venues shown below to talk about any town, village or site.
