Sleaford, UK: Town Council continues with objections to new link road facilitating crossing closure

20 Oct

Sleaford Town Council is continuing with its objections to the compulsory purchase order it has been served by the South Kesteven District Council. The Town Council’s objections relate to the western strip of the Boston Road recreation ground which is needed to allow the construction of a new highway. The scheme as developed would see the Southgate level crossing eliminated and a footbridge provided while vehicular traffic will be diverted to use the new link road. The scheme is designed to allow development of two sites – one for a supermarket and to support the regeneration of Sleaford.

Now the full Town Council is set to confirm its opposition to the compulsory purchase order and, in due course, to hold s town-wide referendum to gauge the public position on the link road and associated closure of the Southgate level crossing.
