Plans for 450 new homes submitted for fields south of Lincoln

This story is over

Plans for a major 450-home development south of Lincoln have been submitted for approval with North Kesteven District Council.

The proposed 12.26 hectare scheme would lie on land currently used for agriculture north of Canwick Avenue in the village of Bracebridge Heath, submitted by Barratt Homes North Midlands.

It would also see adjustments to the road layout to allow access, including the formation of a roundabout on Canwick Avenue, as well as provision for primary school land.

The 450 new homes off Canwick Avenue would form the first phase in plans to extend the Canwick Heath area by 3,500 homes in the next 20 years.

Plans represent the first phase of the Lincoln South East Quadrant Sustainable Urban Extentsion, a vision, part of the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan, which aims to see 3,500 homes built in the area by the year 2036.

Some 20% of the new homes on offer will be classed as ‘affordable’, with developments ranging from one bed to five bed. Many will have views of Lincoln Cathedral and the International Bomber Command Memorial on Canwick Hill.

Designs are to be submitted at a later date, however developers have said housing would be in keeping with the surrounding areas and homes would range between one bedroom and five bedrooms.

The details of the designs are reserved at this stage, however developers say: “The scheme should seek to enhance the local character through detailed design. There is potential to use a palette of locally inspired materials and boundary treatments to create a harmonious relationship with the surrounding context.”

Residents were consulted on the plans previously.

The council’s planning committee will consider the scheme at a later date. Click or tap here to view the proposals in full.
