The surveys are now Closed
Thank you for taking part we have had a great response, all feedback will now be analysed and used to support the development of the Neighbourhood Plan, we will also share the outputs here on the website.
Please help us to help business thrive and grow in the Deepings area by completing a 2 minute business survey for the Deepings Neighbourhood Plan. You can answer anonymously if you prefer. It should only take 2 or 3 minutes.
You may have heard that a Neighbourhood Plan is being produced for the Deepings this can help the local community provide direction to the planning authority and thus help influence future development. One element of this is about the local economy and we would like your input to help depict the current situation and give direction as to what may improve matters for businesses in the area going forwards. This is your chance to have an input. The survey can be taken online.
Individual responses will be treated in confidence, we are looking for an aggregated “big picture”. Results will be available on this website.
We have a project proposal for a new Leisure Centre to be included in the Neighbourhood Plan. The vision is “To establish and develop a new integrated Multi-purpose Leisure, Sports, Arts and Social facility in The Deepings, with parking and excellent access for the whole community”.
The key features are:
Consideration will be given to the emerging Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan policy implications, such as:
We welcome your views on these proposals. This has the potential to be a significant new facility and attraction for all the people of the Deepings and the surrounding area.
South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) will soon publish their new draft plan for the whole district. This will cover South Kesteven up to 2036, and it will set out a ‘high level’ direction for new development. It will not necessarily deal with very local issues; that is for our Neighbourhood Plan.
SKDC will be doing their own publicity, and more information on SKDC’s new Plan may be found here: http://www.southkesteven.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=8498
SKDC will allocate large sites in the Deepings for housing and new employment uses to ensure they can meet wider needs.
A significant amount of new housing in the Deepings is now proposed by SKDC (some 830 houses with potential for an additional 2000 or so people of all ages). This is on top of that already permitted but not yet built. We will test their new draft plan against our own emerging ideas, but you are encouraged to involve yourself directly when you see the Council’s publicity.
