Complaints from residents about noise and disruption caused by construction of a college have been taken seriously, officials have said.

Lincolnshire County council planning spokesman Alan Freeman said people near the new Wolds College development in Louth were being consulted.

Residents said the college was much bigger than expected and construction work was noisy.

A meeting will be held later to discuss the college development.

Complaint letters

Ian Linton from Holmes Close said he was not notified about the work - which is taking place within a few metres of his back garden.

He said the new college, which has mechanics courses, will cause a lot of noise when it opens.

Mr Freeman said a number of letters of complaint had been received from local residents - and the matter was under investigation.

Head teacher Peter Kubicki of nearby Cordeaux School said the college was an important development for the community and would offer many learning opportunities to local residents.

The new vocational college is being built on the same site as Cordeaux School.
