Almost 100 homes planned for Skellingthorpe

The plans will bring together two separate applications

Plans for nearly 100 homes in Skellingthorpe have been submitted for final approval.

D&J Scarborough has applied to North Kesteven District Council to build the homes on land off Woodbank.

The plans will bring together two separate applications for housing on the land, including one for 78 and another for 16 houses.

A new estate road will be built to allow access to the site.

“In order to create an attractive setting and sense of place, it has been the aim to reduce the number of cars parking along the road side and in front of dwellings,” said the developer.

How the site could be laid out.

“The majority of driveways are therefore positioned to the side of each dwelling and garages set back within the plots.

“House type and external materials are designed to reflect the vernacular of the local area, which is mainly traditional red brick and grey roofs or red pantiles.”

When the plans were given outline permission they included requirements to build seven homes classed as “affordable”. The developer said these have not yet been identified and are subject to discussion.

Some open space has been provided but will not fulfil outline requirements and the developer said “some off-site contribution will be required”.
