As the next consultation phase of the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan gears up for approval, sites allocated for thousands of new homes in Lincoln and the surrounding districts have been revealed.
As previously reported, the plan which guides housing, jobs and amenities between 2012 and 2036, is largely focussed on meeting the housing needs of the growing community in the City of Lincoln, North Kesteven and West Lindsey.
A target for 36,960 new homes and infrastructure surrounding Lincoln, Gainsborough and Sleaford by 2036 has been outlined in the plan, with delivery ambitions of 1,540 homes per year.
