Have your say

ABOUT 60 people attended a meeting called by Stamford Town Council to discuss transport issues in the town, including the need for a relief road.

Town councillors are putting together a town plan, which looks at issues such as housing, health, education, employment and transport.

It is sent to South Kesteven District Council and Lincolnshire County Council, which are asked to take the town council’s views on board.

The town council held a meeting last night (Monday) in Stamford Town Hall to discuss it.

Opening the meeting, Coun Maureen Jalili (LibDem) said that transport was one of the biggest issues in the plan, which is why it was “important the town council could discuss it”.

She said the plan was not purely about a relief road but looked at all transport issues including parking.
