88 home plan to ‘integrate’ with Lincolnshire Lakes

Project 20 years in the making

Developers have lodged plans for 88 new homes in Scunthorpe which they say will “integrate” with the ongoing Lincolnshire Lakes project.

Harron Homes submitted the proposal to North Lincolnshire Council to build the development on land off Scotter Road South.

As part of the plan, a mixture of two, three and four bedroom homes would be built on the site.

Developers said in its plans that the location of the site would mean the development would “integrate effectively” with the Lincolnshire Lakes project.

It said: “The proposed development will offer a range of high-quality family homes to suit a wide range of purchasers, which will complement the current housing stock and respect the character of the surrounding area.”

The £1.2 billion Lincolnshire Lakes project which promises 6,000 homes for North Lincolnshire.

A series of plans for the £1.2 billion Lincolnshire Lakes project were given the council’s backing in July after three years worth of delays.

The project, which is 20 years in the making, promises up to 6,000 homes as part of a plan to create six new villages near Scunthorpe in a waterside setting.

The first phase of the scheme will feature up to 2,500 new homes in Burringham including a village centre, a health care facility, community facilities, a primary school, new roads and footpaths.

Further proposals will include a £13.5 million roundabout junction off the M181.

North Lincolnshire Council will make a decision on the plan for a further 88 new homes on Scotter Road at a later date.
