Green light given for first lake of the Lincolnshire Lakes project

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 3 Nov 2017

The first lake in the Lincolnshire Lakes project has been given planning approval. 

North Lincolnshire Council approved an application for the lake which will see excavation and engineering works begin on land north of Burringham Road, Ashby Parkland.

Approval has been given for local firm Clugstons to undertake work on developing the first lake of the project following final designs being received by the council.

The lake will be surrounded by residential areas and include beach, watersports centre and a water-based retail area.

Work is expected to begin on the lake in early 2018.

It follows news that a start date and an undisclosed loan have also been agreed for initial infrastructure work on the project.

A HCA spokesman said: “ As a result of this funding, the developer is working with BT to re-route cabling infrastructure, around the site and have signed a contract with Northern Powergrid to deliver the necessary utilities to the site.

“Start on site on the first phase of highway works is planned for the 8th January 2018.”
