Council to review plans for 109 new homes in Lincoln village

A planning application has been submitted for the construction of 109 new homes in the village of Waddington near Lincoln.

Applicants Persimmon Homes have laid out detailed plans for the 7.223 acre site on land west of Grantham Road, comprising two, three and four bedroom properties.

Developers say that alongside the plots would be infrastructure including a new junction and private drive access to Grantham Road, as well as a pond.

The location and layout of the proposed scheme.

The site is currently allocated within the Local Plan, which indicates the demand and appropriate locations for new homes in the central Lincolnshire area.

It is located close to open fields and the RAF Waddington airfield. Developers said in the proposals’ design and access statement: “There are potential noise issues from this however this has been mitigated for.”

A number of local residents have responded to the proposals online.

Seb Richardson told The Lincolnite he had objected to the plans: “For the reasons of road safety (A607 is busy), spoiling the look of the Viking Way, and there are elderly people’s homes nearby, for whom the planned noise would be unacceptable.”

Persimmon Homes added in the vision for the plans: “The overall character for the site is to provide a distinctive and high quality place, which enhances the qualities and character in the surrounding area.”

Developers are currently consulting with the public over the plans and responses can be made in writing by September 3 by email [email protected] or Waddington Parish Office, High Street, Waddington, Lincoln, LN5 9RF.

The proposals will be considered by North Kesteven District Council’s planning committee at a later date.

Last month, plans were also submitted for 187 new homes on the land east of Grantham Road by Tyler Whimpey East Midland.
