A CONSULTATION event is being held in Sleaford tomorrow (Thursday) to give people the chance to find out about proposed housing development in the Sleaford area.
A public drop-in session is to be held at The Source in Southgate, from 9am to 6pm, to give people a better understanding of the long-term planning proposals that will shape the area over the next 20 years and beyond.
For Sleaford the proposals include the identification of land and measures to create 4,500 more homes and 20 hectares of employment land, primarily off London Road and between Holdingham and the A15 at the north west of the town.
Each site has scope to include shops, services and community facilities, schools and road improvements.
The rest of North Kesteven will have to take its share of another 9,500 homes and 25 hectares of jobs to be spread across all of the rural areas of Central Lincolnshire.
The drop-in session is being held as part of the ongoing consultation on the Central Lincolnshire Core Strategy, which will set out the framework for planning policy across West Lindsey, Lincoln and North Kesteven.
The consultation will continue until September 10, with documents available for viewing at the council offices, library and online at www.central-lincs.org.uk
A briefing event specifically for parish councils will be held at Cranwell Village Hall on August 16.
