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.
Please note: This summary has been written from my personal notes, taken at the meeting. The official minutes, taken by the Clerk to the Council, are normally published on the Parish Council Website when approved by Councillors.
Acting Chairman Councillor Penny Stones welcomed Councillors and five members of the public who came along to this meeting, held in the School Hall last Thursday evening. At the public forum held before official business a resident who lives on Main Street raised again her concerns regarding lorries passing through the village, and enquired about the progress of communication with the gravel company (Aggregate Industries, Woodhall Spa Quarry).

Following a complaint submitted to East Lindsey District Council by the Parish Council regarding planning permission reference S/094/02174/17, Kirkby on Bain councillors have been advised that the development now under construction adjacent to Kirkby Manor has been found to be not in accordance with the approved plans on planning concerning the incorrect setting out of the dwelling, decorative brick work above the windows not completed and decorative brick work added to under the eaves.
The owner has been informed that planning permission is required and has been invited to submit a planning application for the dwelling within the next 28 days, so that the Council’s planning department can consider whether permission should be granted. The submission of a planning application does not mean that permission will be automatically granted. If a planning application is submitted and is subsequently refused permission, it is likely that formal enforcement action will commence against the breach of planning control. Continue reading →
