Report to MDTC Full Council 11th January 2016
from South Kesteven District Councillor Ashley Baxter
SKDC Full Council
The next Full Council meeting is due to take place at 2pm on 17th of January. The agenda is not yet available.
Spitalgate Heath – Grantham
The following news is taken from the SKDC website:
“Plans for 3,700 new homes on the outskirts of Grantham are to be built as part of a ‘Garden Village’ development.
The site at Spitalgate Heath, which has formerly been known as the Southern Quadrant, is one of only 14 throughout the whole country selected by the Government to have access to a £6 million fund over the next two years which is designed to unlock the full capacity of sites and provide targeted funding to accelerate development and avoid delays.”
It all sounds very positive but will have a major impact on Grantham and South Kesteven. The site stretches from the A52 near Prince William of Gloucester Barracks right round to the approach road to Grantham from the A1. It will include a Southern Relief Road and a wildlife corridor along the River Witham.
Happy New Year
That’s all for this month. Once again I wish you a healthy and prosperous New Year. I look forward to working with the Town Council and the local community throughout 2017.
