Parks

West Lindsey District Council are working with Project Centre to improve access to high quality green spaces in Gainsborough. This includes Whitton Gardens and the former Baltic Mill site where Caskgate Street meets Silver Street and Bridge Street. The final design package has been informed by the results of our surveys.

Planning applications have been approved by West Lindsey District Council for Baltic Mill (147536) and Whitton Gardens WC Block (147511).
