Final plan for 120 homes in Bracebridge Heath

This story is over

Final plans have been submitted for a controversial 120 home development in Bracebridge Heath near Lincoln.

The proposal, lodged by Lindem Homes, would see the homes built off Canwick Avenue in the village.

North Kesteven District Council had given the green light for the plan back in November 2015, despite concerns from local people.

Now, final designs have been submitted to the authority for full planning permission.

Concerns had been raised by objectors over how the development would impact the village.

Bracebridge Heath Parish Council said the homes would have a “detrimental” effect on local services which they argued were at “breaking point”.

Others added that the proposal was “ill-conceived” and would have a lasting negative impact on the village.

Councillors delayed making a decision on the plan over how the development would affect services for people in neighbouring Westminster Drive and Bath Road.

But, a month later the authority gave the go-ahead for the proposal.

The developer said the homes would be sustainable and “reflect the accommodation needs of different people, families and ages”.

They added in their plans that the homes would help create “an exemplar development” which would set “new standards for others to follow”.
