Go-ahead for 51 affordable homes in Waddington

North Kesteven District Council approved plans for more than 50 affordable homes in Waddington.

Developers Longhurst and Havelock Homes lodged proposals for 51 homes on Station Road in the village.

Now, the council’s planning department has given the green light for the development.

Homes will be constructed on the site next to Brant Road along with 98 car parking spaces and public open space.

Among them, there will be 13 two-bed, four three-bed and four one-bed affordable rental properties.

The site is located to the west of Waddington and the north of Station Road.

The applicants said in a design and access statement for the plans: “The development offers affordable housing within an area with high levels of market housing provision.

“Careful consideration has been made to the design to positively enhance both the site and its surroundings, with detailing designed to a high standard.”

North Kesteven District Council’s planning committee will consider further developments in Waddington at a meeting on April 3.

Two applications for 142 homes and 91 homes on the A607 Grantham Road will be considered by councillors again after being deferred over traffic concerns.
