Car park will be completed in New Year


The completion date for work on a new temporary long stay car park for Sleaford has been put back to the New Year.

Work has been ongoing during the autumn on the project on the site of a derelict warehouse south of the railway station, off Grantham Road.

The new car park will offer 88 standard and six disabled spaces and was predicted to be ready for Christmas shoppers.

Now North Kesteven District Council officials say it will be open early in the new year, opening from 8am to 6pm with a barrier allowing exit only outside those hours.

It is mainly intended for shop and office workers, freeing up more town centre spaces for shoppers and short-stay users.

The Sleaford Masterplan aims to reduce the dominance of cars by providing a low-cost, long-stay option without the hassle of crossing the railway line.
