Spalding Western Relief Road: MP presses council leader to end demolition threat to homes
MP Sir John Hayes has pressed county council leader Martin Hill to end the demolition threat hanging over nine Spalding homes.
The MP believes a previously agreed line for the middle of Spalding Western Relief Road, known as the allotment route - or another in open countryside - should be pursued instead of bulldozing Bourne Road homes.
The council says the middle section, to be funded by house developers, may not be built for a decade or more but the MP fears it may never be built - and the town will have two "roads to nowhere" with the northern and southern ends left as cul-de-sacs.
