Developers scope Lincoln urban extension of 1,200 homes

Space for up to 6,000 homes south of Lincoln

More than 1,200 homes planned for land at Bracebridge Heath will form part of an extension of 6,000 to the south of Lincoln.

A scoping document before North Kesteven District Council asks for the authority’s view on the 1,200 homes to be built on land to the north-east and West of Sleaford Lane.

It also includes plans for 2.6 hectares of employment land and a primary school.

The documents reveal the development, submitted by Manchester-based Hannah Graham, will be in an area allocated in the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan as the South East Quadrant Sustainable Urban Extension (SEQ).

The submitted development will take place over three parcels of land.

According to the 2017 Local Plan, the plan for the SEQ is to build 3,500 new homes by 2036, however it adds there is “further potential beyond that date to deliver a total of 6,000 dwellings”.

It will also feature seven hectares of employment land.

Although it will be linked with the construction of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass, the document says direct access to the new road will not be provided.

The plan says urban extensions “must be developed as sustainable places”.

The applicant’s estimate their build will be complete within 20 years of planning permission being granted.

An Environmental Impact Assessment submitted to the authority doesn’t raise any significant risk, but does make several recommendations.

Statutory consultees have been given until June 21 to respond to the most recent plans.
