Increase in planning fees
In line with new government regulations, West Lindsey District Council will be introducing a 20% per cent increase in planning fees. The council will start applying the fee increase from 17 January 2018. The reference for the Regulations is SI 2017 no.1314
The Government regulations will also introduce a new fee of £402 per 0.1 hectare for ‘Permission in Principle' applications, the ability for authorities to charge for applications for planning permission following the removal of permitted development rights through Article 4 directions or by condition.
Finally, a fee of £96 for prior approval applications to permitted development rights that were introduced in April 2015 and April 2017. These include the rights for the installation of solar PV equipment on non-domestic buildings, the erection of click-and-collect facilities within the land area of a shop, the temporary use of buildings or land for film-making purposes and the provision of temporary school buildings on vacant commercial land for state funded schools.

Mobile Library Middle Rasen
Dear Parish Council,
As part of an ongoing review of the Lincolnshire Library Service we are changing some of the District Mobile Library routes with effect from 1 July 2017. The District Mobile Library service will serve 233 stops in the county - some busier stops will get a longer visit, some less well used ones are getting a slightly reduced visit and some will be removed. Unfortunately there has been low attendance throughout the year at the Mobile Stop at Middle Rasen and so the vehicle will no longer be visiting the village.
There is Market Rasen Library which is only 5 mins away by car.
If any residents are unable to travel to Market Rasen, can you please pass on my contact details below, so that we can offer them a visit from our Access Mobile which delivers library resources directly to customer's homes

Succeeding Together :
Do you know any women in Lincolnshire who have been out of work for a while? Maybe they have been looking after young children or an elderly relative. Or maybe they have been ill or been made redundant.
If you know of anyone who has thought about setting up their own business but doesn't know where to start then the Succeeding Together Project could be just what they need! It doesn't matter whether they have a business idea or not, the aim of the project is to help them decide whether setting up a business is right for them and to show them what they need to do to set up and run a successful business.
We run a series of 5 workshops at various venues across the county. Initially there is a 2-hour 1 to 1 session to help identify what support is needed. The workshops will look at different aspects of starting up a business; including some of the following topics dependent on the needs of the individuals:
How to set up a business
How to write a business plan
How to do Market Research
How to start Networking and get the most from it
Marketing the business both online and offline
Setting up an online business
Where to get help with a business
Digital skills for running a successful business.
There will also be support between workshops via email from the Project Officer and peer support via a closed Facebook group.
