Councils making the right moves
I WAS pleased to read in the Target that Skegness Town Council is likely to support the proposed Western Economic Development Corridor, which would bring a relief road to Skegness and new commercial development.
The corridor could eventually lead to thousands of jobs being created in Skegness, many of them of an all-year-round nature which the town so badly needs.
A relief road, initially linking the A52 with the A158, would ease the traffic congestion which the town suffers from and take many heavy goods vehicles out of the town centre and the Lincoln Road, Queens Road and Wainfleet Road areas.
The whole concept, though, would be put at risk by the electricity compound and associated cabling proposed for land off Wainfleet Road in connection with the Tritton Knoll offshore wind farm.

This would not only be a blot on the landscape to greet tourists into the town but could also put a blight on the relief road and the commercial development.
I am also pleased, therefore, that the town council and Lincolnshire County Council are objecting to the sub-station proposal.
