The proposals were originally approved at outline stage in December 2017

A joint application has been submitted to take forward plans for 150 homes in Market Rasen.

Developer Rippon Homes, along with landowners David Nelstrop and Prospect Place, have applied for final permission to build the homes on land South of the Ridings.

The proposals were originally approved at outline stage in December 2017.

Residents from a number of nearby roads had opposed the plans, citing concerns including flood risk and the safety of proposed open water, as well as the exacerbation of existing traffic issues and highways safety.

The proposed site layout to go before West Lindsey District Council.

Market Rasen Town Council joined objectors in raising concerns including the impact on local infrastructure.

However, officers approving the plans said they would help meet local housing need and any adverse impacts would not outweigh the benefits of the development.

Prospect Place said the plans were in a suitable and sustainable location.

They were asked to contribute £338,293 towards education and £425 per dwelling towards healthcare.
