We are using your comments to inform the detailed design.

In 2018 we secured nearly £2.1m from the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (HLEP) to improve and carry out essential maintenance to two key industrial roads directly linked to the A180.

The two roads; Moody and Woad Lane, are the main access routes to key employment sites in Grimsby and will link to the junction of the new Humber Link Road. Work will start in March and take 10 months to complete.

This is the first phase of a planned three stage programme of road and cycle improvements to the A180 and its link roads.

The objectives of this first phase are to:

  • Maintain and enhance access to the existing industrial estates adjoining the A180 and employment sites on the South Humber Bank, improving journey time reliability for road users
  • Provide new safer off-road facilities for cyclists and pedestrians
  • Provide long term cost savings by improving the condition of the highway
  • Reduce the risk of disruption and congestion on these estate roads.

We asked for local residents and businesses to comment on the draft design for an A18 road safety scheme.

We asked for your views on our Housing Assistance and Disabled Adaptations Policy. Specifically, your thoughts on on the purpose of loans and grants such as, reducing fuel poverty and improving access in the home to enable independent living.

You can check out the policy here: Housing Assistance and Disabled Adaptions Policy

You saidWe did
Means testing would block some people on the “borderline” for DFG works from getting help, and this isn’t fairWe removed means testing for all DFG works funded by the council
The End of Life fast track scheme: The application time needs to be reducedThe application time from start to finish will be reviewed as part of the implementation
The policy will only be effective if it backed up by innovative and efficient assessors & implementers.The council, NLaG, Navigo and CCG are working in close partnership (i.e. regarding housing options and dementia friendly adaptations) to ensure that innovative options are available which will streamline the whole process, and make use of pre-existing assessors/implementers who are “on board” with changing the way the processes are run to achieve better and faster results.
People living with dementia should receive sufficient support and care at home to meet their needs.It is recognised that Dementia friendly home assistance would be most helpful to those with dementia if put in place earlier in the dementia journey, and therefore there is a focus on ensuring those in this position can access the benefits of this discretionary DFG element easily
Get new property developers to include more disabled properties in their developments so less need to be adapted – this will build the stock of properties for disabled people to move to.There are planned adaptation works to a selection of properties proposed in future housing development. This will ensure highly sort after, fully adapted properties are available within the market. This will provide flexibility and ensure higher need service users have improved housing options. In addition, innovative funding is being used to adapt social housing stock in line with a pilot for this policy. This is to ensure those who are most vulnerable on the home choice links register and have a need for an adapted property will have appropriate housing options available.

Throughout the planning process community involvement and consultation plays an important role. Whether it is during the preparation of the Local Plan, other planning policy documents or when a planning application is submitted to the Council for approval.
