Final phases approved on Dunholme 275-home estate

A quarter of the development should be classed “affordable”

The final two phases of a 275-home development in a village north of Lincoln have been given the go ahead.

The plans by Chestnut Homes for 77 homes and 76 homes on The Meadows, Lincoln Road/Honeyholes Road, form part of the Dunholme village.

When overall plans the plans were originally approved, managing director David Newton said the scheme would “provide a thoughtfully-designed development of much-needed new homes in a suitable location in Dunholme and will help to meet housing need locally.”

Documents before the council say the developers want to create a “village feel” for the area and have included a green at the heart of the village to enhance that.

They were approved by the delegated powers of West Lindsey District Council officers.

The layout for the four phases of the development.

Phase three will be built to the north of the boundary with Honeyholes Lane behind properties on Merlswen, with phase four next door completing the link between the two roads.

The overall development will see a quarter of the new houses be affordable.

As part of the agreement Chestnut Homes has been asked to contribute £657,393 towards education provision and £116,875 for healthcare.

The company will also contribute a further £483,050 for road improvements, which includes the work to upgrade the A46/Lincoln Road, Welton junction (Centurion Garage).
