District council submits plans for 42 homes in Lincoln village

North Kesteven District Council has submitted proposals for 42 homes in a busy village on the edge of Lincoln.

The authority’s Property Services department plans to build the new estate on land off Station Road in Waddington.

The site is currently primarily vacant, but has been recently used as a horticultural nursery business and has historical links to railway services.

Proposals include a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses with 34% to meet the government’s definition of affordable housing.

Two car parking spaces would be provided for each property, with access roads and communal space created as part of the proposed development.

Applicants North Kesteven District Council Property Services said: “The development would promote growth in the village and ensure that existing services and amenities are sustained; this is vital to the sustainability of the village.

“Additional development in this location would also aid in creating new employment opportunity through the construction of the dwellings as well as giving the potential for new business within the village in the future.

“In turn the development also has the ability to aid in sustaining services within nearby town of Sleaford, Newark and City of Lincoln and will potentially aid in sustaining numbers using the public transport running through the village.”

However, Andrew and Jane Parkes who live on Station Road have objected to the plans, citing privacy and security concerns.

They said: “We believe the development is going to have a significant impact on our lives. There will be a detrimental effect on our light, privacy, security and noise pollution.”

Councillors on North Kesteven District Council’s planning committee will consider the plans at a date to be confirmed.
