Plans for 29 homes to round off development of Hawthorn Road paddock area

This story is over

Plans for 29 homes to complete the development of a paddock area off Hawthorn Road near Lincoln have been revealed.

The unused land adjacent to Wesley Road has been identified by several developers, and lies a mile from the eastern edge of Lincoln and the village of Cherry Willingham to the east.

This latest proposal at the south-west corner of the paddock consists of 15 two-bed homes, and an additional 14 properties with four or more bedrooms.

The planned development sits adjacent to another area (3a) earmarked for development which is subject to a separate application.

The sites immediately to the north of the site have also had planning applications given the go-ahead in recent years.

The first phase (1a) of the paddock area was subject to two planning approvals, one for 22 homes, which received planning approval in February 2013, and one for eight houses, which was approved in February 2012.

Construction work is complete on this phase.

Work on the second phase of development (1b), which saw plans for 37 homes approved in January 2013, is also underway.

Plans for a further 59 homes adjacent to phase two (2a and 2b) were approved by councillors in May and August 2015.

Agents LK2 Architects Ltd said: “This scheme is a logical extension to the previously approved residential development and completes the naturally enclosed paddock area.

“The scheme is carefully designed to respect the amenity of nearby properties and avoids any issues of overlooking, overbearing and overshadowing.

“This scheme will create an attractive community of distinctive character, and strong identity with easy access to nearby services, most within walking/cycling distance and all served by public transport.”

A decision on whether to approve the scheme will be made by West Lindsey District Council.
