After years arguing that there is an issue with the South Kesteven District Council planning process, I feel a breakthrough has finally been achieved. At this month’s Group Leaders’ meeting, it was agreed that in future if a planning officer is minded to ‘approve’ an application which a council member considers contentious then the case can be brought to the development control (planning) committee. Previously, the decision was down to the lead planning officer. Whilst the change will be monitored, it is a significant move forward.

We know how important the hospital is to local people and ULHT will continue to work hard in recruiting the staff we need to safely deliver services across all our hospitals. The department continues to provide a quality service to the patients who attend during the opening hours of 9am to 6.30pm.
