Consultation begins on 18,000 home development

New homes? A consolation is about to begin, getting residents’ opinions on a number of new homes in the city.

Lincoln residents have been invited to look at plans to build over 18,000 more homes around the city.

North Kesteven, Lincoln and West Lindsey councils have put forward proposals that could shape the next 20 years’ worth of developments.

On Friday, August 10, planning officers will be at the Drill Hall on Free School Lane from 10.30am until 2.30pm.

Visitors will be able to ask questions and learn more about what will happen to the local area.

A total of 18,000 houses will be built in three sites. Greetwell Quarry, Swanpool and Canwick Hill will all host sustainable properties.

A further 80 hectares of land for businesses and employment have also been proposed.

As previously reported, across the county there will be even more construction projects.

By 2031, it is hoped that there will be 42,000 new houses and 140 hectares worth of employment land throughout Central Lincolnshire.

These developments will also include shops, schools, community facilities and road improvements.

The full consultation will last until September 10 and residents will be able to read the proposal documents at central-lincs.org.uk, their local library or at the various council offices in the city.
