Over 150 more homes signalled for Lincoln village

An outline planning application has been submitted for the erection of up to 151 new homes in the village of Welton near Lincoln.

Applicant Welton and Jays Ltd is proposing to build 151 residential properties of Hackthorn Road, and an area of public open space is safeguarded for a potential medical centre.

The 6.16 ha site comprises three agricultural fields and also contains the residential curtilage of The Jays, which would be demolished in the plan.

The developments would contain a mixture of housing types and a medical centre.

Pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular access to the estate would be created by two new junctions onto Hackthorn Road.

A pedestrian footpath is also to be created alongside Hawthorn Road to tie in with the local footway network.

It is proposed that one-two bedroom properties will have one car parking space. Properties with three bedrooms or more would have two parking spaces.

The medical centre element would have a total of 40 car parking spaces.

Welton, localted 11km to the north east of Lincoln, has a population of around 3,800.

In March 2015, developers were given the go-ahead to build a new 350-home estate in the village, bringing the total proposed developments in the village to over 500.

The plans were met previously with detractors who were concerned by the development, including the Gainsborough MP at the time Sir Edward Leigh who said the size of the development is “completely beyond what is acceptable”.
