After consultations with Sleaford Town Council and North Kesteven District Council it was decided to revise plans for the Winding Hole and Slipway to take into account their comments. To help produce a more professional look to the project the Trust was authorized by Mary Powell, from Lincolnshire Waterways Partnership, to engage a firm of consulting engineers to produce a new solution acceptable to all parties. The Trust has also commissioned a survey of the trees in the area to ascertain any potential problems. A draft plan has been produced which is now under discussion and seems to satisfy most of the criteria.
Design for the Winding Hole and Slipway
The Trust will be shortly resubmitting a planning application for the works with a view to starting work as soon as is feasible afterwards.
