(Note: The ECO-Town Team have now been informed of the basis of the foregoing and the misleading East Lindsey Mablethorpe figures on which it is based.)
So this bid is fundamentally flawed. The dimensions given do not make sense and this is not a matter where the true dimensions need to be expressed by other than the bidder for the bid to make sense. This is not a private company but a district council where its constituent’s views should be represented. Because this bid has been so secret there are too many ambiguities for a publicly owned document be acceptable.
How does East Lindsey imagine, when there are large towns like Grimsby and Hull, with rail, motorway networks, the Humber Bridge between the Town and Hull, an airport and yet still suffer from large areas of social depravation, that a large town in the middle of nowhere will not? Surely central government would best invest in them before creating another concrete wasteland.
Lack of proper consultation and secrecy prior to the bid.
Flood risk and climate change is not a given. The people don’t fall for that. The total C02 output of UK is a mere 2% of global C02.
Misleading and incorrect statements about the area.
Misleading statements about sea defences.
Unclear about the location.
Unrealistic about size.
Regeneration? It isn’t in Grimsby where there is existing infrastructure. Why would it occur in East Lindsey fields?
