LN6 third phase to go before councillors

This story is over

Plans to build 29 homes as part of phase three of a Lincoln housing development will go before councillors next week.

Proposals for the site known as LN6 on Westbrooke Road, next to Tritton Road, will be discussed by members of the City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee on May 23.

The council’s planning officers have recommended approval of the plan.

Applicants Chestnut Homes had the first two phases of the development approved by the local authority in December 2014 and January 2017.

The third phase would see a continuation of the first two and provide similar housing types as those previously approved.

Chestnut Homes have said that approval of phase three would allow them to retain staff following the completion of for phase two which is expected in June 2018.

Construction of the second phase of the development sees 27 two and three bedroom homes built at the site.

An application for the fourth phase of LN6, which would see 23 new homes off Skellingthorpe Road, has already been submitted by the applicants.

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “LN6 is revitalising a previously neglected piece of land on one of the main routes into Lincoln, and we are proud to be bringing this site back into use.

“The new homes we are building will help to meet the continuing shortage, and the landscaping we have carried out has created an attractive green setting for the development.

“We were extremely proud when LN6’s first phase was named Residential Project of the Year (at the Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards in February), and the same high standards of workmanship are being applied as we build the homes in phase two.

“When completed, LN6 will comprise a total of 79 homes, green open space and newly created wetland, and we believe that development is an excellent use of this previously disused piece of land.”
