PHEW: Plans online stating that the proposed Link Road in Sleaford would run through the Bristol Bowls Club was a text error.

ONLINE plans stating that the proposed Link Road in Sleaford will be built through the Bristol Bowls Club have been confirmed as a “text error” by the council.

In a Revised Transport Scheme published on North Kesteven District Council’s website on June 19 the documents stated: “The site of the proposed SESRR (South East Sleaford Regeneration Route) is in the region of one hectare and runs south from Boston Road through Bristol Bowls Club, across the railway line and meets the lane running parallel to the railway line and intersects Mareham Lane.”

Simon Burgess, Strategic Communications Officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “It was a text error on our part.

“The traffic modelling that was recently carried out was accurate - it is just the wording on the document that’s incorrect.

“The proposed plans for the link road have not changed and it is not planned to run through the bowls club.”

North Kesteven District Council has confirmed that none of the previously approved technical or physical aspects of the Link Road application have changed – it still follows the same proposed line, with the same junctions and construction.

It added that the new information under consideration was the assessment of how the Link Road will impact on traffic flows in that part of the town.

The original application, number 08/0122/FUL and can be viewed at www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/planningonline and public comments can be made up to July 14.

    Fair enough Madow, I didn't follow the planning ref. I would be too much to expect the Echo to check references or links the give, it is quiet common for them to be wrong.

    Sorry MC I meant that if you enter the reference given in the story into the planning portal it refers to a house in Hykeham and an application for an extension - its absolutely nothing to do with Sleaford or the link road:-)

    Makes no difference, a proper 'search' will request information from the local authority to confirm details about any planned developments, disputes or roadworks that may affect the property.

    I'm sure the owners of the house in North Hykeham this planning ref. refers to will be delighted you've publicised it!!!
