21 home plan for council’s former depot in Metheringham

NKDC applying through its own housing company

North Kesteven District Council’s housing company wants to build 21 homes on the site of its former depot in Metheringham.

Lafford Homes, which is owned by the authority, has submitted the proposed development on Sleaford Road to its own planning department for approval.

Documents submitted to the authority by Lindum Group on behalf of the council said the housing will include a two bedroom bungalow as well as two and three bed semi-detached houses and a series of one bed flats.

How the site would be laid out.

It said six of the homes will be classed as “affordable”.

“The proposed development is of a high quality design that responds to the sites conditions and respects the surrounding area,” said the report.

The site was previously the council’s depot, but it and a bungalow at the front of the site were demolished and cleared in 2018.

A new depot was opened on Scoley Court in the same year.
