Local Bus information

From Local bus – Roadside information

We have been busy working to support the local bus network and ensure our LCC CallConnect bus service continued to operate over the last few months – however post lock-down, public transport will be very different and social distancing, hygiene and face covering measures will be in place.

For everyone who travels on public transport please consider carefully the times, routes and ways you travel. This will ensure all will have more space to stay safe. If possible we would encourage travel after peak times for concessionary bus pass holders.        Continue reading

Planning determination | storage building, Kirkby Lane


Parish Councillors have received several expressions of concern following the erection of road signs indicating a pig farm on land on both sides of Kirkby Lane, close to residential properties. The signs are adjacent to the same land as indicated by a planning applicant, Mr Adrian Fox, who sought a determination of whether or not prior approval is required for the siting, design and external appearance of a storage building. The case officer, Leanne Clark, has recommended that prior approval is not required in this case. The Parish Council was not consulted on this matter, but are now seeking clarification on their concerns about possible negative impacts on the village.

ELDC and Boston Borough | Strategic Partnership proposed

Kirkby on Bain Parish Council has forwarded an interesting article by Councillor Craig Leyland, Leader, East Lindsey District Council:

Strategic alliance between Boston Borough Council and East Lindsey District Council

I wanted to make you aware of a proposal that I am bringing forward in regard to a closer working partnership for ELDC with Boston Borough Council.

Boston Borough Council and ELDC have worked together closely in recent years to deliver a number of services, including Building Control, Community Safety/CCTV, Waste collections and more.  This partnership working has been successful and has enabled us to save significant sums of money and still provide high quality services.

Over the course of the next few weeks the Leader of Boston Borough Council, Councillor Paul Skinner, and I, will be bringing forward proposals in regard to a closer, more formal partnership going forward, which would build on the current working arrangements and strengthen ties between the two Councils.  This would take the form of a strategic alliance.          Continue reading
