Lincoln developers’ delight as inspector overrules council and approves 130-home estate

The applicants behind proposals for 130 homes and 25 retirement apartments in a village north of Lincoln have described their delight at being given the go-ahead for the development.

West Lindsey District Council previously rejected plans by Jackson & Jackson Developments and Globe Consultants for the estate in Sudbrooke.

However, the developers successfully appealed to the Planning Inspectorate, claiming that the council had not made a decision within the statutory timescale.

The development, called The Parklands, will include a mix of housing types, containing affordable homes, a pub/restaurant, open spaces, community allotments and an outdoor gym.

A new building will be created to provide up to 25 apartments for retirement living, and the proposal will see the demolition of nearby poultry units, reducing unpleasant odours and heavy goods vehicles.

West Drive and Holme Drive will also be extended and widened to serve the development.

It is anticipated that the development will be linked to an agreement which outlines eligibility preference to local residents or people with connections to the village.

Dominik Jackson, of Jackson & Jackson Developments, said: “We’re delighted to receive the Inspectorates’ decision for The Parklands at Sudbrooke, granting the permission.

“So much effort has gone into this site to create a sympathetic scheme with real benefits for the surrounding area.

“We now look forward to progressing the detail and setting about the build process with our local team.”
