Town councillors in Louth have agreed that the Charles Street pond needs to be restored for future generations after a public complaint.

Councillors received a complaint from a resident over the East Lindsey District Council owned pond at their May 21 meeting.

Councillors agreed to bring the pond’s apparent poor condition to ELDC’s attention.

Coun Jill Makinson-Sanders said she had heard the wooden areas at the site were ‘falling to bits’.

“It’s been used for years and years and years,” said Coun Margaret Ottaway.

“The fishing club have done so much good work.”

Coun Eileen Ballard said ELDC should be ‘made to be responsible’ for the pond and Coun Trevor Marris agreed that it had to be made safe for the public to continue to use.
