West Lindsey District Council is calling for all residents of Gainsborough to contribute in a survey to help them understand how you want the new town centre green spaces to look and feel.

This includes the design elements for Whitton Gardens and the former Baltic Mill site where Caskgate Street meets Silver Street and Bridge Street, with a separate survey for each.

Sally Grindrod-Smith, Director of Planning, Regeneration and Communities encourages all residents to have their say. She said: “We are working with Project Centre to improve the high-quality green spaces that are Whitton Gardens and Baltic Mill. We encourage all residents of Gainsborough to help us identify what you want in these areas in order to move forward with this exciting project.”

As previously reported, the council was successfully awarded £10 million from Central Government in 2021 as part of the 20 year Levelling up Programme, to regenerate the town and help create a Thriving Gainsborough.

The project has been co-produced with our communities, politicians, local businesses and third-party investors. It develops the momentum created by previous interventions and implements further visibly impactful and transformational change.

The aim is to create an enhanced network of green spaces and embrace green technologies while addressing the most pressing systemic challenges and market failures that currently impact the town and community.

The survey will close at 9am on 9 May 2023, where the results will be evaluated and fed into the regeneration of both sites.
