Ashby population rockets 30 per cent, Bottesford declines and 167,000 people now live in North Lincolnshire
Ashby has the fastest growing population in North Lincolnshire with a whopping rise of almost one-third in 10 years.
But Bottesford - once the boom town of Glanford when estates of new homes were built in the 1970s and 1980s - is the only place where the total population declined over a decade, official figures show.
North Lincolnshire Council says all its electoral wards have grown in terms of population in recent years, with the exception of Bottesford.
