We’re asking people for their suggestions of potential locations where a Designated Stopping Place could be established in the borough.

By law the Council must assess and meet the need for both permanent and temporary Gypsy and Traveller pitches.

This is also a key requirement of the Local Plan, a document that provides the framework for future growth of the area.

A Designated Stopping Place is an authorised site that can be used as a temporary stopping place for members of the Gypsy and Traveller community who are travelling through North East Lincolnshire.

The most recent Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment for North East Lincolnshire, carried out in 2014, found that 15 temporary pitches are needed if the borough is to fulfil the objectively assessed need.

Fifteen pitches will provide space for 30 caravans and these could be placed in one location or split across two or three, depending on the shape and size of the site.

The call for sites closes on 19 January 2018.

The draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment lists the current provision of pharmaceutical services across the area and sets out how this meets the needs of the population. The North East Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) is asking local people for their views – is the current provision suitable, are there any gaps, for example? This is why we need your input.

Back in October 2017 we asked the public a range of questions about how they use pharmacies and the preferences they had. The Health and Wellbeing Board have used these results along with a wide range of other information to write the draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) and is now inviting comments on the draft document.

PNAs are used by the NHS to make decisions on which NHS funded services need to be provided by local community pharmacies.  The PNA will help NHS England when making decisions on whether to approve applications to open new pharmacies and will help to check if current services are meeting resident’s needs and what future needs there might be.

The consultation asks people if the draft PNA clearly explains what pharmaceutical services are currently available in North East Lincolnshire, and whether the needs of the North East Lincolnshire population are reflected appropriately.

How can I have my say?

Please contact us using consultation@nelincs.gov.uk if you are unable to access the web version of the PNA.

Using the findings from this consultation and from other feedback, a final PNA for North East Lincolnshire will be published April 2018.

This consultation period runs from 18 January to 19 March 2018.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and the Lincolnshire Wolds Joint Advisory Committee (JAC – AONB Partnership) are asking for the public to once again share their comments and input to shape the final Strategy and Action Plan for the nationally protected Lincolnshire Wolds AONB between 2018-23.

As part of the development of the Kennedy Way centre, the developers pledged £50,000 towards public art in Immingham. The money needs to be spent this year and initially, we’d like to hear your views on what makes Immingham special. This will be used to ask artists to put forward ideas, and then we’ll be asking again for your input.

This consultation is due to close on 4th Feb 2018.
