34 home plan in Barton to meet ‘housing shortfall’

Developers say they’ll be high quality homes

A plan has been lodged to build 34 new homes in a North Lincolnshire town in an effort to meet a “shortfall in housing supply in the region”.

Developer Mr M Farnham submitted the plan to North Lincolnshire Council for land off Marsh Lane in Barton-Upon-Humber.

The plan would see 34 new homes built on the site which would see an existing home demolished to make way for the development.

The developer said in its plans that the new homes would help to meet the need for housing in the region and create a development that would be of a “high standard”.

It said: “We feel there are sufficient positives to justify the redevelopment of this site for residential purposes.

“The redevelopment of this sustainably located site would assist in providing homes within the area as there is currently a shortfall in housing supply within the region. “

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