Spalding homes demolition threat: 'Council hell bent on destroying people's lives
The front runner for a middle section of Spalding Western Relief Road (SWRR) remains a devastating route option that would see nine homes destroyed.
Lincolnshire County Council's figures in a new report suggest taking the road through a line of homes on Bourne Road will cost £40.75million, and that is the route recommended by council officers.
Council figures show shunting the line further west to the Trojan Wood site is expected to cost an additional £2.24million - but crucially no homes are in the firing line.
