302 homes proposed for former North Lincolnshire RAF base

Decision looms

Plans have been lodged for up to 302 new homes on a former RAF base in North Lincolnshire.

Green Meadow Limited has submitted an outline application for the new homes on the former RAF Kirton base in Kirton In Lindsey.

The site is currently vacant and contains a number of buildings associated with its use during the Second World War.

The proposals would see up to 302 dwellings built on the former base, including public open space.

Permission is also being sought to demolish current buildings and all matters would be reserved apart from access to the site.

Councillors on North Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee will consider the application this week as a matter of significant public interest.

The planning officer at the council has given a recommendation of approval for the application subject to a section 106 agreement.

The strategic housing department at the local authority has recommended that 20% of the units proposed in the application be allocated for affordable housing.

Environmental Health have asked for more information regarding noise, contaminated land and air quality at the proposed site.

Meanwhile, Kirton In Lindsey Town Council has said it supports the application but added that additional funds would need to be put in place in order for the town’s services to cope with the potential increase in population.

Councillors will decide on the application at a planning committee meeting at North Lincolnshire Council on Wednesday (February 14).
