Work on Louth and Horncastle Projects Begins

Construction on long-awaited flood alleviation schemes in Louth and Horncastle is set to start this month.

Planning permission for both schemes has been granted, archaeological surveys of the sites are being carried out, and construction will begin shortly.

The £6.5m Louth project and the £8.1m Horncastle project are funded and delivered by a partnership of Lincolnshire County Council, the Environment Agency, East Lindsey District Council, and the Lindsey Marsh and Witham Third Internal Drainage Boards.

The ongoing maintenance will be funded by Louth and Horncastle Town Councils. The Environment Agency has led on developing the scheme and construction will be undertaken by their contractors.
