"It is with the greatest pleasure that we announce that following the public referendum the Sturton By Stow & Stow Neighbourhood Plan has been MADE.  The voting was 237 in support with 32 against,"

From now on the Planning Authority (WLDC) must tale account of the policies adopted by our neighbourhood plan when considering future planning applications.  Our plan will be reviewed when the next higher level plan (the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan) is adopted in approximately 2023.

Sturton and Stow Vision

We are strong, safe and thriving communities. We value and protect our historic, natural and rural environments, with development and amenities reflecting the needs of the communities. We value the distinctive character of our various settlements.   Our people love living here.

Welcome to the 'Sturton By Stow with Bransby' and the 'Stow with Normanby by Stow and Coates' neighbourhood planning website. 'Sturton By Stow with Bransby' and 'Stow with Normanby by Stow and Coates' are 2 small rural settlements located midway between Lincoln and Gainsborough. Our Parish Councils decided to enter into an innovative partnership to develop a joint Neighbourhood Plan. This initiative is supported fully by West Lindsey District Council; our plan will support them in their planning application decision-making process where our Neighbourhood Plan will reflect the aspirations of both local communities. Grant funding is available from Central Government to create our plan.   Further explanation of the Neighbourhood Planning process can be found at the Locality website,
