Affordable flats plan off Nettleham Road withdrawn for redesign

The site straddles two authorities’ boundaries

Plans for an affordable apartment block off Nettleham Road have been withdrawn so that the developer can look again at the designs.

Taylor Lindsey had already submitted revised designs for the 20-flat build following changes to plans for the Romangate Development on the edge of the A46.

Changes to the site, which straddles the boundary of both City of Lincoln and West Lindsey District Councils had previously included lowering parts of the building while retaining a higher central point.

Now, however, the company wants to look again.

A spokesman for Taylor Lindsey said the plans were withdrawn “to be redesigned and resubmitted”, however, would not be drawn on the reasons why.

However, they were certain it would be back before the authorities saying: “It’s part of our Romangate Development, we’re just reviewing our designs.”

The site, off Nettleham Road, in Lincoln, was due to comprise entirely of affordable housing.

All of the flats were planned to have on-site parking, and would have overlooked an open space on the development.

A report submitted to WLDC said the road layout and design remained the same as the previous application and added that all the ground floor flats had provision for disabled access.
