Broadband boost for homes in Coningsby area - councillor


Ninety per cent of homes in the Coningsby area should be receiving a better broadband service by April 2016.

That was the message from County Councillor Colin Mair at a meeting of Conginsby Town Council last week.

He said that in areas where broadband was not available, special transmitters would be erected.

Coun Mair also said he was disappointed with the condition of work in the Hurnbridge Road area.

He said the surface has been re-surfaced recently but reported grass is already growing through. He promised to raise the matter with the Highways department.

Coun Mair went on to comment about the potential loss of retained fire-fighters at Woodhall Spa and asked anyone who was concerned to contact the fire service.

PCSO Alison Evans gave the police report and reminded everyone not to leave Christmas gifts on show.

Councillors were disappointed to hear PCSO Martin Clough has been transferred to Boston.

They asked clerk Kathy Roberts to write and thank him for all the excellent work he has done in the village.

Coun Phil Brown reported on progress being made in forming a group to draw up a Neighbourhood Development Plan.

He said 22 people had attended a positive meeting.

Coun Mair was elected chairman and Donna Davis secretary.

The group will put in an application to ELDC for the area to be covered by the plan.

Another meeting will be held on December 8 in the Lion’s Den (7pm).

The group is not “fixed in stone” and anyone else interested is very welcome to attend
