Public meeting to be held at Bourne's Corn Exchange to discuss potentially contaminated land on undeveloped land at Elsea Park
A public meeting will be held to inform residents about potentially contaminated land in Bourne.
The issue was raised during the open forum at Bourne Town Council's meeting earlier this month and concerns were outlined that undeveloped land at Elsea Park was contaminated.
It will take place on Monday, December 9, at the Corn Exchange and starts at 7pm.
Coun Brenda Johnson, mayor and chairman of Bourne Town Council, said: "Following various meetings between South Kesteven
District Council and residents of Harvey Close, we know that many people are worried about possible soil contamination in certain currently undeveloped parts of Elsea Park.
"Clearly everyone’s top priority is to look after people’s health and protect them from harm.
"The residents have asked for this meeting to give local people the chance to receive information about possible soil contamination following past known activities on this land and its mitigation.
"Everyone is welcome to attend and to ask relevant questions through the chairman on the evening."
