Relieved Spalding residents hope they have won the war in fight to save their homes
A Christmas miracle U-turn has brought a reprieve for nine Spalding families whose homes were threatened with bulldozers.
Yesterday's (Monday’s) county council Highways and Transport Scrutiny Committee unanimously voted to take the middle section of Spalding Western Relief Road through an industrial site - Trojan Wood Ltd - in Bourne Road instead of smashing through family homes on the same street.
Relieved families, who say they have endured 10 months of hell, now hope the council ruling executive will rubber stamp the recommendation on January 7.
