Start date set for Lincolnshire Lakes

The huge development is planned for the outskirts of Scunthorpe

A start date's been set for work to begin on the £1.3bn Lincolnshire Lakes development near Scunthorpe.

Its after the Government agreed a loan to the developers.

The project would see over 6,000 new houses built and create thousands of jobs.

But it won't include a new stadium for Scunthorpe United, after the club pledged to redevelop Glanford Park instead.

Now work on infrastructure will start on January 8th.
