Groups giving views on plans

Have your say

DEVELOPERS looking to develop Spalding’s Holland Market say they are “working hard” to take on board the views of community groups in the town.

Holland Market manager Michael Moran, who looks after the British investments of retail specialists Corbo, said contact had been established with Spalding Civic Society and the Pedals campaign group over the plans.

Although the proposals have yet to be finalised, Mr Moran has teased a few of the ideas which could see new shops and a better bus station.

The plans may also incorporate the Sir Halley Stewart Field.

Mr Moran said: “We have established contact with Spalding Civic Society and Pedals and we will be working hard to take on board their views.

“Particularly with the Civic Society, we want to do our best that any new development is in keeping with Spalding’s heritage.

“With Pedals, it’s an open book. We want to work as best we can with them.”

Meetings have been arranged for both groups for the New Year.

Mr Moran is also continuing discussions with South Holland District Council.
