Representatives from the Local Government Association (LGA) will undertake an independent review to help improve West Lindsey District Council’s planning service.

The council received 1,321 planning applications in 2014/15 and has seen a significant increase in the number of major and complex applications this year.

The LGA’s Planning Advisory Service (PAS) will provide an objective assessment of the service and suggest any improvements as part of the peer challenge process. It will take place between Wednesday, October 21, and Friday, October 23.

They will hold one to one sessions and focus groups with representatives of resident and amenity groups.
