Cllr Craig Leyland

I'm very pleased that this edition of the Messenger is able to report on some very positive events and investment for East Lindsey.

Economic investment is a key element of our work and I was very pleased to attend the inaugural East Lindsey Business Awards.

This event recognised the importance of all the businesses that operate in our district and the contribution they make to employment and skills across a wide spectrum of specialisms.
Did you know for instance that a company in Coningsby makes composite panels for train interiors or that some of our agritec companies export all over the world?

As a Council we will continue to encourage future investment and support for the companies that operate across the district.
We also look to invest in our tourism industry and it is immensely pleasing to see the success of our investment in beach chalets coming to fruition.

Working with Mablethorpe and Sutton Town Council and the Sutton on Sea Residents' Association we have invested on an extensive refurbishment of beach chalets. Recognising the iconic importance of the great British seaside holiday, this investment is now starting to pay dividends.
And it's great to see the quality of our beaches recognised by the prestigious Blue Flag.

As a Council we have made the decision to invest in replacement LED footway lighting. After an informative consultation process we are now in the process of delivering on this decision. More information is available in this issue of Messenger.

Please take time to read about the T.E.D programme and the benefits of being involved in this Big Lottery Funded scheme. Aimed at our older residents, this project is focussed on reducing social isolation.

There is no doubt that we will still have to make difficult decisions in the future but we recognise that careful investment, used well, is improving opportunities in East Lindsey for residents of all ages.
