Final backing expected for 120 homes in Bracebridge Heath

The final green light is expected to be given for 120 homes to be built in Bracebridge Heath near Lincoln.

Proposals by Linden Homes would see the new houses built off Canwick Avenue and Westminster Drive in the village.

A total of 22 two-bedroom, 37 three-bedroom and 61 four-bedroom homes would be built as part of the plan.

North Kesteven District Council’s planning committee has been recommended to give the final backing to the proposal.

The authority gave outline permission for the plan back in November 2015 after delaying a decision on the development.

Plans for 120 homes to be built on land off Canwick Avenue have been submitted to North Kesteven District Council

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

Meanwhile, Bracebridge Heath Parish Council have raised objections over the design of the homes and “serious concerns” over a single entrance to the site and the impact on traffic in the area.

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

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

The council will make a final decision on the plan at a meeting on July 16.
