Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting and contributed their ideas.   We’ll be using that feedback to help formulate the Parish Council response to SCDC, which will be shared with you in due course.   Around 120 people attended, so we had a good level of representation from villagers.

One of the questions asked was “what more can we do” to prevent excessive land development, so here we’ve listed a number options to help people engage to ensure Kirton and Falkenham develop in ways that you would wish.

  1. Write to SCDC planning to register your concerns — by 30th October.   The more objections received, the more likely notice will be taken*
  2. Write to your MP (Therese Coffey)
  3. Write to the land owner(s)
  4. Find out about the proposals at
  5. Join Kirton Community & Countryside Conservation on facebook and share ideas, especially about co-ordinating responses
  6. Think about opportunities to engage more widely eg social media, newspapers, radio/TV etc.
  7. Please share this information with you friends and neighbours — unfortunately we’re still hearing of people who don’t know about what’s happening
  8. Follow the latest updates from the Parish Council by registering for email updates at, or follow us on twitter @Kirtonfalkenham

Unfortunately we’ve missed the deadline for the October edition of   the Kirton & Falkenham Review, so please share this notice with anyone you feel may be interested  

* Individual letters work better than signed copies of a standard letter
