There will also be a sustainable drainage scheme on site, a key feature of which is the inclusion of swales adjacent to the main spine road, along with a surface water attenuation basin on the eastern part of the site.

The application was approved by 20 members with one abstention at a North Kesteven District Council planning meeting on Tuesday, January 17.
