New homes plan for North Lincolnshire village

Developers said it will help housing need

Plans have been resubmitted for 13 new homes in a North Lincolnshire village in an effort to meet housing demand in the region.

Developers submitted the plan to North Lincolnshire Council for land behind Chesswick Crescent in Keadby near Scunthorpe.

A similar plan for homes on the site was refused by the local authority in December 2018.

But Mark Simmonds Planning Services have resubmitted the proposal on behalf of applicant, Liam Dexter.

Developers said the site is in need of use as it is “overgrown and vulnerable to fly-tipping”.

In the plans, the applicant added that the proposal will help with housing need in North Lincolnshire and that the site is ready for development.

It said: “it is considered that this be a suitable site for a major development which would include the provision of affordable housing and that the principle of development for the residential scheme as described is considered to be acceptable.”

North Lincolnshire Council will make a decision on the plans at a later date.
