North Kesteven District Council and Lincolnshire County Council share a vision to improve accessibility and enhance the sustainability of travel in Sleaford to support economic growth in this historic market town.
Transport is a fundamental part of achieving this vision and working in partnership the councils have developed this Transport Strategy to help identify and prioritise a range of measures. These will support growth by helping manage existing and future travel needs, and creating a better environment for everyone living in, working in or visiting Sleaford.
The Strategy will help to address existing transport and travel issues within Sleaford town centre and the surrounding area. It will also help support proposals for significant growth in the short, medium and long term whilst helping mitigate any impacts associated with that growth.
The Strategy is closely aligned with Lincolnshire’s Local Transport Plan (LTP4), the Sleaford Town Centre Masterplan and the emerging Central Lincolnshire Local Plan. It is focused on the urban area of Sleaford and some of the immediately outlying areas as shown in the image below.
