New Bassingham homes plan out to consultation

Back to the drawing board

A planned development of 39 new homes in Bassingham, south west of Lincoln, will go out to public consultation.

People who live locally to the proposed development will get the chance to share their views at the Hammond Tower Room at Hammond Hall between 3pm and 6pm on Wednesday, July 24.

Developers want to build 39 homes, 10 of which would be affordable, on Whites Lane.

New plans follow previously approved designs for 25 homes on the plot, which were met with much objection from the local community.

New homes would be built to nine different styles and applicant Rippon Homes says they will be “designed to be in keeping with the local vernacular and sustain the village feel.

The existing tree belt nearby would remain untouched so as not to impact the woodland area.

Ian Dyke, Managing Director of Rippon Homes, said: “We hope to receive a positive response from local residents in Bassingham to the proposals that we have put forward for our site on Whites Lane.

“This will bring much-needed, quality-built homes to the area that will help those struggling to get onto the property ladder.”

Previous proposals for 35 homes on the plot of land, submitted by Lindum Homes and Orchid Properties, were approved by North Kesteven District Council in 2015.

The plans received a sizeable response from the local community, with over 170 objections lodged by villagers on the groups of environmental and traffic concerns.

Work however did not begin within the allotted two years and new developers are formulating designs for an altered proposal.

New designs for the development have not yet been submitted to the council for approval.
