Technical issues that have delayed building the new Visitor Centre in Bottesford have now been resolved and work can now press ahead after being given the all-clear.
Ground work started in February but had to stop as workmen were faced with ground related issues. The council has been working with the contractor Clugstons and Severn Trent to resolve this.
The Bottesford and Yaddlethorpe Education and Visitor Centre in Bottesford is a £350,000 investment to promote leisure in the area.
It will complement what’s already there at Bottesford Beck that has seen improvements in recent years to make the area more attractive to visitors.
The Centre will host a range of educational visits for schools, exhibitions and talks for adults.
It will also link with the popular Ironstone Way, a 10-mile circular walk that will officially open on 28 April.
It is hoped the new centre will open to the public autumn 2018.
Cllr John Davison, ward member for Bottesford, North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“I am pleased we have been able to resolve these issues working with Severn Trent and the contractor.
“This means we can now progress with building this fantastic Centre that will be a real asset in the local community.
“Bottesford Beck is already popular and well used by dog walkers and nature lovers.
“The new Visitor Centre, linking to the Ironstone Walk, will complement this by providing opportunities to learn, exercise, take in the wonderful wildlife and soak up the tranquil atmosphere.
“This is a key investment that will not only provide a learning resource, but somewhere to explore in your leisure time.”
