Developer’s 60-home Sutton Bridge plans approved

The development will include 15 homes classed “affordable”

A developer’s 60-home plan in Sutton Bridge has been given the go-ahead.

Loyd Homes has been given reserved matters permission on their plans to build on land to the north of Nightingale Way by South Holland District Council.

The applicant is looking to build 45 market value homes and 15 classed as “affordable” with a mix of one-four bedroom units and five shared ownership properties.

How the site would be laid out.

Documents by planning officers said the appearance of the site was acceptable, and that planned landscaping was “suitable for the site”.

“Overall, there are not considered to be any significant or demonstrable adverse impacts relating to residential amenity that would warrant refusal of this proposal,” said the council’s officer in their report.

Eight residents had objected to the plans due to highway concerns, the location of the site, flood risks and the density of the proposed properties.
