Former Cleethorpes school to make way for homes

42 homes will be built on the site

A plan to demolish a former school building in Cleethorpes to make way for 42 homes has been given the green light.

Developers Ross Davy Associates lodged the proposal to flatten the site at the former Thrunscoe School, Highgate, in order to build the semi-detached homes.

North East Lincolnshire Council has approved the plan which also includes garages, access, parking and landscaping.

The school, which was built in 1932 by Lindsey County Council, was closed in 1996 and most recently used as an education centre.

But the local authority closed the centre in 2017 and the site on has since been put on the market.

How the homes would look on the former Thrunscoe School site in Cleethorpes.

Developers said in its plans that the development will include a mixture of semi-detached homes, but that no affordable housing will be provided.

It added that the site would be well served by schools and local amenities.

In its plans, it said: “The proposed dwellings will be marketed for a range of buyers, including families, first time buyers.

“There is a good range of facilities and services within Cleethorpes. Services and local amenities include local primary and secondary schools, convenience stores, post office, bus stop, place of worship, hairdressers, takeaways, pharmacy and public house.”
