Over 150 new homes planned for Horncastle

Homes will “create lively, vibrant and diverse street scenes”

Plans to build 165 homes in Horncastle have been submitted to East Lindsey District Council.

Gleeson Developments says its plans for land north of Mareham Road will create a “good opportunity to contribute towards the need for new housing”.

In documents submitted to the council it adds that the mix of house types planned will “create lively, vibrant and diverse street scenes.”

“The proposal significantly enhances the housing provision of modern semi-detached and detached homes within the area […] adding much needed diversity to the immediate locality,” said the documents.

“Careful consideration has been given to the location of new dwellings in relation to security but particularly privacy design standards and distances while considering the impact of development on the surrounding area.”

The build includes 13 different property styles and a mixture of 26 two-bedroom, 95 three-bedroom and 44 four-bedroom houses.

How the site could be laid out.

It will be surrounded to the north, west and south by a large area of public space which the developers said will create a buffer with existing residents and reduce the build’s visual impact.

Houses will each have a minimum of two off-road parking spaces, while some will also include an additional garage.

Each property will also have a minimum of 10.7m of space between any facing homes.
