The district council has said ‘collaborative working’ is the preferred way forward but could not speak specifically regarding devolved powers yet.

A spokesman said the council would work to the benefit of their communities but that authority leaders did not yet have the details of what it would entail.

Leader of the council Coun Craig Leyland said: “East Lindsey District Council already has a good track record of working in partnership both with neighbouring councils and Lincolnshire County Council in order to deliver local services at lower cost to local taxpayers.

“A collaborative approach to service delivery, where this benefits the local area and makes economic sense, continues to be our preferred way forward.”

ELDC is one of seven district councils in Lincolnshire which, among other services, looks after housing, refuse collection, environmental health and local planning.

It covers the major district towns of Spilsby, Skegness, Louth, Horncastle, and Mablethorpe.
