Middle Rasen Litter Pick


Eight people turned up for the recent village litter pick. One pair went along the main road to Market Rasen, another around the central streets of the village finding all sorts of bits of rubbish. One intrepid person climbed into the ditch bottom on the main road where the trees have been cut down, he removed several bags of rubbish. Another went to Lincoln Lane. Two more went to Sand Lane and found several bags full of rubbish to pick up, including a dump of clay pigeon "clays", most of which were very broken up. We also found old road signs, four tyres and two places where several bags of clothes etc. had been fly tipped. Why everyone asks? It takes no more effort to go to our recycling centre than dump stuff near watercourses or in little woods. Now the council will come out and collect all the rubbish we collected. We were only out for two hours but collected a vast amount of rubbish, which should never had been there.

There are also several people who constantly go round their area of the village picking rubbish up. Thank you to those people, as well as the ones who turned up for the group litter pick.

Message from Marc Jones Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner

A SURVEY, designed to gather the views of thousands of people about the future of policing has been launched.

The research, launched by the Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones three years ago, broke all records last year when close to 3,500 people took part. Over the past two years the annual survey has played a key role in shaping the PCC's council tax and spending plans.

In 2018 residents' views led to a number of new initiatives including:

The launch of the Community Speed Watch (CSW) Scheme – with parish volunteers being mobilized to identify speeding drivers. Funding for advanced and refresher driving courses for under 25s and over 60s – the two groups that too often feature in serious and fatal collisions on our road.

A new command and control computer system– the most up-to-date in the UK – to transform communications between the public and the police force and the way in which units are deployed. The introduction of a new neighbourhood policing model using modern mobile technology to support local officers and PCSOs to be out in the community for longer. These improved systems will enable a better focus on protecting the vulnerable, monitoring potential risks and gathering intelligence whilst tackling and preventing crime.

This year's survey will continue to guide priorities and crucial decision making on where investment should be made, said Mr Jones. “The response in previous years has been phenomenal and the thousands who took part certainly played an important role in helping me shape the future of their police force.” “This year will be no different. The people who engage with the research can be confident that their opinions will be heard and acted upon and, of course, I would encourage as many people as possible to ensure their voices are heard. ”To complete the survey, please visit:

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


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
