Developers want to build 250 new homes in Louth according to plans submitted to East Lindsey District Council.
Gleeson Regeneration, the Tuxworth Family and Metacre have submitted a joint full application to the authority to ask permission to put the houses on Brackenborough Road.
The proposals include 110 detached houses and 70 pairs of semi-detached houses along with garages, attenuation ponds, open space, a children’s play area, a pumping station and a sub station.
Documents submitted to the authority on behalf of the applicants by Lincs Design Consultancy, said: “The proposal will significantly benefit the local economy in the short-term during the construction phase and in the longer term through the additional population assisting the local economy through spending on local services/facilities.
“There will also be Council Tax receipts arising from the development.”
The site already has permission for 171 homes, which was approved in December 2018 and is allocated for housing in the East Lindsey Local Plan.
The developers say the plans will be in keeping with the town and will make a contribution towards ELDC’s five-year housing supply target of 7,819 new homes across the district.
They conclude that adverse impacts from the proposal would not outweigh the benefits.
