Barton link road plans: Have your say on the future of North Lincolnshire

09:19, Thursday, 9th June 2022

Residents and businesses are being invited to comment on the final stage of the area’s new Local Plan, which includes amendments to the route of the planned Barton-upon-Humber link road.

The proposals – which will take HGVs out of Barton centre – are the result of detailed conversations with people from across the town and nearby villages.

The proposed link road would join the A1077/ Falkland Way to Caistor Road and connect to the A15 Bonby Lodge interchange via the B1206.

It is hoped the revised plans will enable the town to grow while reducing town centre traffic and take the environment into consideration.

Other amendments to the plan include changes to the designation of land at Barnetby Top, the provision of roadside retail areas and the provision of a cemetery extension off Falkland Way in Barton.

The Local Plan supports the Council’s vision to build a better North Lincolnshire and we want to hear the views of residents, communities and businesses, all of whom have a stake in the future of the region.

Comments can be made at http://www.localplan.northlincs.gov.uk on the council’s consultation portal or by emailing localplan@northlincs.gov.uk.

The consultation period is open until 5pm Monday 11 July 2022.

The Local Plan sets the overall strategy for development in North Lincolnshire up to 2038.

It contains key strategic policies, detailing land for new jobs and the number of new homes to be built in the area.

Comments can only be made on the proposed amendments – comments about any other part of the plan cannot be accepted.

Any comments submitted last year during the Publication Draft’s consultation are still valid and do not need to be re-submitted.
