75.22  To receive an update regarding The Management Plan for the Bovis Development in Linchfield Road.

Cllr Shinkins-Hoppe relayed the Construction Management Plan and Method Statement to the Committee stating conditions to be managed:

Parking of vehicles for site operatives and visitors, loading and unloading of plant materials, storage of plant materials used in construction and development, wheel washing facilities.  

The routes of construction traffic to and from the site including any off-site routes for the disposal of excavated material and strategies stating how surface water run-off, on and from development will be managed during construction and protection measures for any suitable drainage features. These should include drawings showing how the drainage systems permanent or temporary connect to any outfall temporary or permanent during construction.  

This Construction Management Plan and Method Statement is to be strictly adhered to throughout the construction period.

Cllr Shinkins-Hoppe asked the Committee if they felt that the conditions have been met.

Concerns were raised about construction access to the Linden/Bovis site still being used at Campion Drive and Burchnall  Close, which has been used for two years.  Construction traffic is due to use the Linchfield Road entrance at the start of Phase 2.  Phase 2 was thought to be beginning in December 2021 and the Developers are now turning vehicles around so they cannot use the Campion Drive/Burchnall Close access and have set a new code on the gate, halting the use of this entrance.  Cllr Stevens is going to check that the conditions stated in the Construction Management Plan and Method Statement are being met, as no construction in Phase 2, should take place unless these conditions are met.


76.22 To receive a report from the meeting held with the Assistant Director of Planning at SKDC.

Notes were sent out to the Councillors referring to the recent meeting, which described the origin of the joint Deeping St James and Market Deeping Neighbourhood Plan and conferred to make sure that The Neighbourhood Plan have a voice at the pre-application stage; this was for the benefit of the change in Management at South Kesteven District Council.  The Chair of the Neighbourhood Plan is trying to organise another meeting with the Assistant Director of Planning at SKDC to maintain a dialogue and connection going forward.  


77.22  To update regarding the meeting reference Lincolnshire Bus Service Improvement Plan.

It was discussed that Delaine buses are removing their service from Crowson and Thackers Way, due to the number of vehicles parked along the roads and outside the shops and the effects of the school opening and closing times causing delays to the bus.  Due to this, Delaine are looking for support to cancel the planned clearway with LCC, along Thackers Way, as this site is now obsolete.  Delaine plan to continue the service along Linchfield Road, Horsegate and then head back up to Market Deeping.  This is to be discussed at Full Council. 


78.22  To receive an update regarding the Welland Footbridge.

Cllr Jackson from Peakirk Parish Council and the Northern Footpath Forum has put in a funding application to the Langdyke Trust.  Further funding is being applied for.  Deeping St James Parish Council need to make sure planning permission is continued.  A Civil Engineering Company recently put hardstanding down; photos are to be sent to the Planning Officer to make sure the requirements are met for planning permission.
