Annual Parish Meeting 2018

Those who came along to the village school hall last Thursday were treated to an entertaining and informative evening, organised by  Parish Councillors. After the Primary School choir got us in the groove with three songs, Alwyn Killingsworth spoke about the forthcoming Heritage Weekend which this year would be tied in with the Open Church Weekend on 8/9 September.

Councillor Pat Tartellin then talked about a new programme of Kirkby on Bain walks organised by herself and Councillor Penny Stones. Pat also said she was hoping to get Kirkby on Bain included in the Wolds Walking Festival and although too late for this year, she was optimistic for next year.

After a refreshment break during which we were invited to sample biscuits and vote in the ‘Bake a Biscuit’ competition, keynote speaker Eran Bauer gave a fascinating talk about the recent mustard gas major incident in Kirkby Lane which attracted so much national media attention at the time.

Mustard Gas update: Kirkby Lane to close again

Following the announcement that the revised start date for Phase 2 of mustard gas clearance works by the Ministry of Defence was to be 16 April, notices have recently appeared at the Woodhall Spa end of Kirkby Lane, though not at the Kirkby on Bain end. Thanks LCC Highways! The signs indicate that the road will be closed from April 15 at 6pm until April 25 at 6pm.

 

I understand that this revised start date is wholly dependent upon there being no other calls on the MoD’s resources at the scheduled time. Previous update | ELDC Incident Update page

Kinema development plans approved

East Lindsey District Council has granted the Kinema in the Woods planning permission to build a third auditorium next to the existing cinema, which is in the Woodhall Conservation Area, and to create a new car park. The decision is subject to conditions, some of which reflect the concerns of nearby residents and other interested parties such as Lincolnshire County Council (Highways, Environment & Economy, Countryside Access).

The long list of conditions includes prior approval of a Tree Protection Plan, details of external materials, surface and foul water disposal plans, proposals for the provision of bird nest features and bat boxes, cycle parking plans and details of doors and windows. The planned car park must be completed before building work starts, and no trees or shrubs may be felled between February and July. The development must be begun not later than the expiration of three years beginning with the date of the permission, 06/03/2018. Continue reading
