Lindum Cottage rubble eyesore: update

The unsightly remains of Lindum Cottage, demolished in March 2018, have at last been moved out of sight.  The “eyesore” issue was originally raised at the Parish Council meeting last November, and was discussed once again at this month’s meeting. Following action by East Lindsey District Council, in December the present landowner, understood to be Coningsby building company Costellow and Tokelove, crushed the demolition rubble, but left the pile close to the main road through the village, causing further complaints by those living near the site and others passing through.

Vehicles clocked at 75mph+ at school drop off and collection times

From Simon Tydeman:

Village speed sign data update, March 2019

The latest data from the village speed sign on Tattershall Road (40mph section) has been analysed and the following results obtained. The 85th percentile speed (used as an accurate measure of longer term trends)  has dropped slightly from prior periods to 43.3mph.   Also, the percentage of drivers speeding is around 27%, again a slight drop on prior periods.   Hopefully this represents an improving long term picture.

Despite these improvements, we continue to see alarming speeds being recorded with instances of 85mph being recorded on more than one occasion, and one vehicle clocked at 95mph. We have also noted cars travelling in excess of 75mph during the school drop off and collection times when children are walking around the village.             Continue reading
