Core strategy gets the green light at committee meeting

A document shaping development through central Lincolnshire over the next 20 years has been given approval.

The Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee, made up of representatives from North Kesteven District Council, City of Lincoln Council, West Lindsey District Council and Lincolnshire County Council, gave the Core Strategy for the area the green light on Monday.

Under the proposals, up to 42,800 homes will be built in Central Lincolnshire over the next 20 years, with supporting infrastructure alongside.

Maps indicate proposed development in Corringham, Heapham, Hemswell, Hemswell Cliff and Grayingham

It has something to say on Renewable Energy which will be pof great interest in the Hemswell Ward in the light of the proposed wind farms.

People will have the chance to have a say on the proposals and submit formal representations when a six-week period gets underway on 29th July.

Coun Ric Metcalfe, chairman of the committee, said: “This is a long-term plan to give people the jobs and homes they need in communities that are self-sufficient with all their needs for transport, goods and services met.”

Hemswell Cliff Wind Farm Planning Application Update June 2013

This Planning Application is making progress. Research is well underway on several areas namely; Landscaping, Radar and Archaeology. Reports will be submitted in due course.

WLDC has indicated, that the application may be determined at a specially convened meeting in the Autumn of 2013, at the Epic Centre, Lincolnshire Show Ground.

WLDC is hoping to stage another consultation roadshow in the Hemswell Ward during the summer.

If you are for the Wind Farm Project or opposed please submit your letter to WLDC as soon as possible giving appropriate reasons related to the merits of Planning Application.

For more information access the WLDC Website.


Update on Hemswell Cliff Wind Farm Planning Application Reference No. 128940

RWE have finally provided West Lindsey District Council with the further information they requested.
A six week period of public consultation has now started, during which you can view and comment on the revisions. (Note – Any comments or objections you may have originally submitted will still count)
A copy of the SEI Non Technical Summary document is attached.
If you would like access & read the full documents please click on the link below, it should take you to all the submitted documents, if you look for all those dated 4th June 2013 they are the new revisions.
If that link doesn’t work just go to WLDC Planning Webpage & search for Application Reference No.128940
WLDC provided RWE with a list of issues which arose from original objections however the application appears to remain essentially the same as the original.

Other things have moved on with a Government statement regarding the planning process and the way that the National Planning Policy Framework should be used to safeguard the interests of local communities; the full statement is also attached for you to read.This statement is to be studied closely to appreciate the implications, for example if the Community is to vote on the Wind Farm application, which communities are to be identified and logistically, how is such a vote to be managed and by whom.
