Sir Peter Tapsell to attend public meeting on Mablethorpe development plans

SIR Peter Tapsell has agreed to attend a public meeting over the Lindum Group’s redevelopment proposal for Mablethorpe.

Resident Kim Parrinder has organised for the meeting to take place in Mablethorpe at the end of this month and is urging locals to go along and have their say on the controversial plans.

And it is hoped that Leader of the East Lindsey District Council, Coun Doreen Stephenson, and district council chief executive Nigel Howells will also be able to attend.

The plans which include new housing, a supermarket and a public house are currently undergoing consultation. Last month the Mablethorpe and Sutton Town Council delayed making their recommendations until further expert guidance could be sought.

The proposal has been the subject of much controversy over recent months; a heated town council planning committee meeting last month saw residents speak passionately both for and against the plans.

The Leader understands the final decision could be made as early as next month by the East Lindsey District Council.

Organisers are hoping that at least 200 people will attend to give their thoughts on the proposal with local MP and Father of the House of Commons Sir Peter present to hear the views.

The meeting takes place at Mablethorpe Community Hall in Stanley Avenue on Saturday, October 29 from 6pm.
