Plans revealed for 61 homes in growing village north of Lincoln

A proposed development for 61 homes in a village to the north east of Lincoln has been received by West Lindsey District Council after outline plans were approved in 2014.

Applicants Mrs H Turley and Rippon Homes Ltd have submitted the proposals on 2.73 hectares of agricultural land off Hackthorn Road in Welton.

The plans include a mixture of terraces, coach houses, semi-detached and detached houses consisting of two, three and four bedroom properties.

The development would sit next to an existing residential estate to the south, and farmland to the north and east.

Access to the estate would be via Hackthorn Road.

Outline permission for the scheme in the north east of the village was granted by the district council at a planning committee meeting on October 22, 2014.

Agents JH Walter LLP said: “The site is sustainably located with good access to the local road network and within walking distance of a wide range of services and amenities.

“There should be a presumption in favour of sustainable development in accordance with national planning policy requirements.”

This development is directly south of an application for 151 homes on Hackthorn Road which was unanimously rejected by councillors due to location and lack of medical centre commitments.

In March 2015, developers were given the go-ahead to build a new 350-home estate off Prebend Lane nearby in the village, complete with affordable retirement properties.
