Lincolnshire County Council gives notice that it proposes to carry out improvement works in the village of Middle Rasen, located on Manor Drive, Gainsborough Road (A46), Wilkinson Drive and the recreation ground off Wilkinson Drive.

The proposed improvement works will be undertaken over a six month period and are expected to commence Spring 2018 and will involve the following:

  1. Creation of a replacement outfall headwall and installation of a new flap valve on the watercourse, to the eastern side of Manor Drive, to discharge into the River Rase.
  2. Installation of a new flap valve on the existing headwall to the drainage system to discharge into the River Rase on land to the south of North Farm, North Street.
  3. Replacement of an existing headwall and chamber for the watercourse situated between Vine Cottage and The Mill Wheel on Gainsborough Road (A46)
  4. Improvement of the existing highway drainage system on Gainsborough Road.
  5. Installation of a new drainage system consisting of new pipework from the existing watercourse situated adjacent to Vine Cottage and The Mill Wheel on Gainsborough Road, into Wilkinson Drive and across the recreation ground to connect to the existing Public Sewer situated in the recreation ground.
  6. The reinstatement of overflow outlets into the existing watercourse to the western side of Manor Drive, and the replacement of the syphon arrangement with a single chamber located on the Public Sewer system on the eastern side of Manor Drive.
