63-home Nettleham plan up for final approval

The land saw multiple applications in recent years

The developers of a 63-home plan in Nettleham are seeking final approval from councillors.

Lace Market Properties has submitted a reserved matters application to West Lindsey District Council for the 3.1 hectare land north of The Hawthorns, which will also include public open space.

The plans were approved at outline in October last year and a planning appeal decision shortly after confirmed the removal of a condition limiting the site to 50 homes.

The latest application has seen the site layout altered slightly to what was originally submitted and has confirmed the house types.

How the original site layout of the plans for 63-homes in Nettleham looked.

The land had been included in a rejected earlier, larger proposal for 200 homes across a much bigger site.

But there had been a difficulty in demonstrating sufficient land being available for development and was turned down at appeal.

However, since then the local plan had been adopted and showed a housing need.

The site is one of four sites within Nettleham allocated for housing by the local plan.
