Big Local


Winterton is a market town with a population of approximately 5,000 people surrounded by prime agricultural land close to Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire.

Winterton Big Local began by carrying out several different kinds of research ranging from participatory appraisal to visioning. Part of this research was carried out at events designed to get the people of Winterton involved in Big Local.

The masses of data was looked at by five committees to produce a vision of the five areas in which Winterton residents would like to see some improvement:

  • to be an active and healthy community
  • to be a prosperous community
  • to be a cohesive community
  • to be a learning community
  • to be a sustainable, clean and green community.
