Consultation is due to begin early next month on the future of Spalding’s traffic and travel network.
The new transport strategy is a joint initiative between Lincolnshire County Council and South Holland District Council and will provide a clear focus on the main challenges facing Spalding now, and in the future.
The town is earmarked for significant growth in the coming years and the strategy will aim to identify how people and goods can move around safely and efficiently, which will be key to supporting the economic prosperity of the area in the future.
Councillor Richard Davies, executive member for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “You might remember that in December we consulted with local people to understand their views on how the transport infrastructure of Spalding needs to evolve in the coming decades.
“Since then, we’ve drafted a Transport Strategy for the town and will be holding some consultation events in early June to allow members of the public and local businesses to review it.
“This transport strategy will help us to support and promote economic growth in Spalding and I would encourage anyone interested to come along.”
