Governance

North East Lincolnshire is a unitary authority that has operated a cabinet-style council since 2003. There are 42 councillors. They elect the cabinet in May each year. Each cabinet member is responsible for making decisions within their portfolio area.[3] The governance of North East Lincolnshire Council has come under scrutiny from the audit commission on two occasions[4] leading to special public interest reports for its failings. During this time (between 2003 and 2011) it was run politically as a coalition between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. In June 2011 it became a minority Labour controlled Council.[5] In 2012, Labour gained a majority on the authority, before losing it two years later and have run it as a minority. In 2019, the Conservatives managed to gain a majority for the first time since the establishment of the council in 1996.[6]

North East Lincolnshire council was also the council subject to the Kelly report for Ian Huntley involvement and the Soham murders.

Media

The radio station for the area is called Compass FM, and takes its logo from the logo of North East Lincolnshire, being based south of Grimsby railway station. BBC Radio Humberside have a small studio to the east of Grimsby town centre. Grimsby Institute have the innovative Estuary TV (former Channel 7) television, based at the Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education. Propeller TV was also part of Grimsby Institute. The Grimsby Telegraph is a daily newspaper.

Economy

The North East Lincolnshire towns of Grimsby, Immingham and Cleethorpes, form the economic area known as Greater Grimsby. The main sectors of the Greater Grimsby economy are food and drink; ports and logistics; renewable energy and chemicals and process industries.

This is a table of trend of regional gross value added of North and North East Lincolnshire at current basic prices published (pp. 240–253) by the Office for National Statistics with figures in millions of British pounds sterling.

2000 3,861 60 1,805 1,997

The area has one power station, the South Humber Bank Power Station, which is owned and operated by Centrica sited at Stallingborough.

Similar to North Lincolnshire, the area has its fire and police run by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and Humberside Police.

Transport

Council road works sign on the A46

There are four main roads that link to the unitary authority - the A180 (from the M180) which was built in 1984, and the A46 from Lincoln. The A46 terminates in Cleethorpes, previously terminating at the Laceby roundabout, and follows the former route of the A18 through Grimsby and Cleethorpes. The A18 which runs from Doncaster to Laceby past the Humberside Airport. And the A16 from southern Lincolnshire through Louth, Entering the town at toll bar roundabout Waltham

There are good connections by railway from Doncaster and Sheffield, which start at Manchester Airport - the TransPennine Express.

It is transport by sea that the area has national significance. The two ports of Immingham and Grimsby, when combined, have the largest tonnage of freight of any UK port. Immingham has many DFDS freight routes (DFDS Seaways since 2010, the former DFDS Tor Line) to Europe.

Education

The local LEA has comprehensive schools, becoming comprehensive in the early 1970s when part of the County Borough of Grimsby, and the Lindsey Education Committee, based in Lincoln. However, due to the proximity of West and East Lindsey which have grammar schools, some children capable of passing the eleven-plus are bussed over the border to places such as Caistor, Louth, and Alford. Previous to this Cleethorpes had girls' and boys' grammar schools, and Grimsby had the girls' and boys' (which joined in the late 1960s) Wintringham grammar schools.

The local secondary schools have improved in recent years, but Grimsby still has some of the worst GCSE results in the country. There is a clear cut dichotomy of education up to 16, with schools on the edge of Grimsby and Cleethorpes performing with respectable results, leaving the centre of these towns with struggling schools that have faced closure. Most schools have converted to Academy status, with some also lucky enough to move into brand new spacious buildings. It is more the case that affluent parents would refuse to send their children to schools in central Grimsby, hence the schools on the outer edge do much better.

Franklin College has a good reputation at A level, and regularly produces the best A level results for state schools in the former area of Humberside (north and south). It was formed by the Humberside Education Committee, based in Beverly. Sixth formers travelled from East and West Lindsey to attend this college, such was its reputation.

The main FE college in Grimsby is the Grimsby Institute. This offers a wide range of vocational courses and has links with the fishing industry. It offers higher education courses, and has done for many years - HNDs, for vocational subjects. It has the long-term ambition to become a university. The University of Humberside used to have its food science campus at the college, but removed this when it became the University of Lincoln.

A180 road (England)

The A180 is a primary route in northern England, that runs from the M180 motorway to Cleethorpes. The road is a continuation of the M180, but built to lower specifications: it is mainly dual two-lane without hard shoulders. The road is (mostly grade separated) dual carriageway for 16.87 miles (27.15 km) from the M180 to Grimsby, and is a single carriageway road for 2 miles (3.2 km) between Grimsby and central Cleethorpes.

The town lies on the Greenwich meridian and its average annual rainfall is amongst the lowest in the British Isles.

DN postcode area

The DN postcode area, also known as the Doncaster postcode area, is a group of 32 postcode districts in England, which are subdivisions of 13 post towns. These postcode districts cover eastern South Yorkshire (including Doncaster), north Lincolnshire (including Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Barnetby, Barrow upon Humber, Barton-upon-Humber, Brigg, Cleethorpes, Gainsborough, Immingham and Ulceby), small parts of Nottinghamshire (including Retford) and the East Riding of Yorkshire (including Goole), and a very small part of North Yorkshire.

The S64 postcode district for Mexborough was originally earmarked as DN13, which has never been used. Otherwise, the area's districts are numbered sequentially up to DN22, then from DN31 to DN41 for the eastern spur of the area, in and around Grimsby.

There is one non-geographic district, DN55, which has a single purpose use to Royal Mail.

Geography of Lincolnshire

The ceremonial county of Lincolnshire (composed of the shire county of Lincolnshire, plus the unitary authorities of North Lincolnshire and North-East Lincolnshire) is the second largest of the English counties and one that is predominantly agricultural in character. Despite its relatively large physical area, it has a comparatively small population (of less than 1 million people). The unusually low population density that arises gives the county a very different character from the much more densely populated an urbanised counties of south-east and northern England, and is, in many ways, key to understanding the nature of the county (and perhaps even its people).
