Proposals submitted for up to 500 new homes on edge of Lincoln

A public consultation is underway on plans for a 500-home estate on the outskirts of Lincoln.

The Church Commissioners for England have applied to West Lindsey District Council for outline planning permission on the site to the south of St Augustine Road in Lincoln, which lies just outside the city boundaries.

The land, known as Greetwell Fields, is bordered by the residential development at Bunkers Hill, St Augustine Road and Hawthorn Road to the north.

Agents WYG, based in West Yorkshire, have drawn up the application for two new access roads, plus groundworks and landscaping as part of the proposed development.
