Work to start on 350 Welton homes

Work can now begin on a £60 million development for 350 homes in Welton after Beal Homes secured the go ahead.

The land, off Prebend Lane to the north of the village, is currently agricultural fields.

Beal Homes gained reserved matters consent from West Lindsey District Council and will now begin building on the 72 acres including a 22-acre green space with a recreational area.

The development will be one of Beal Homes’ largest schemes to date.

The development will feature 263 open market properties catering for a wide range of buyers and 15 affordable homes. The scheme will also deliver 72 specialist retirement homes developed by Lincoln-based Lace Housing.

It will feature a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes. The Beal properties will include 24 bungalows.

Beal Chairman and Managing Director Richard Beal said: “We’re delighted to have been given the green light for this exciting development, which will be delivered over the next five to seven years.

“The scale of this scheme reflects our continuing growth and capability to deliver ever-larger developments, while retaining the family ethos and highly-personal service our customers value so much.

“The common element in all our schemes is that we build high-quality homes in developments that enhance local communities and where people love to live. Welton will be no exception.”

As previously reported, outline planning approval was given to Beal Homes by West Lindsey District Council for the development back in 2015, subject to conditions which have now been met.

Beal is currently continuing the phased development of The Swale in Gainsborough, which when completed will feature 186 homes.

Beal also recently submitted updated plans for 112 homes on the site of the former Castle Hills Community College in Gainsborough.
