Press Release - 08 Mar 2006

BBEG has recently written to Steve Lumb, Head of Planning, Boston Borough Council

Dear Mr Lumb

LINCOLNSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL COMMENTING ON
BOSTON BOROUGH COUNCIL PLANNING APPLICATIONS
THAT AFFECT HIGHWAYS

I write further to my questions to Cllr Joyce Dobson this week at the Full Council Meeting.

Please could you answer the following question for me with regards to these proposed developments in Boston?

1. Tattershall Road;
2. Cuckoo Land Project;
3. York Street;
4. Proposed Stadium on Broadsides.

Within the traffic modelling being done, I understand that these developments are being considered on an individual basis.

When Lincolnshire County Council Highways are asked to comment, they do so on each one individually, do they not?

Taken altogether, they could make a huge difference to the traffic modelling being done. Surely Lincolnshire County Council should be asked to look at these major developments as a whole, on a match day?

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Yours sincerely

"What Lincoln wants, Lincoln gets. What Boston needs, Lincoln forgets."
