Development will create 30 new homes in Scothern
We will be creating a development of 30 new homes in Scothern.
The development will be named The Grange and will be built on land off Heath Road. The Grange will comprise a mixture of one and two-bedroom bungalows, one-bedroom apartments and two to five-bedroom houses.
Our development plans were approved by West Lindsey District Council’s planning committee at a meeting on Wednesday, February 4th.
The Grange will include 16 homes which will be sold on the open market and 14 affordable homes. The development will be created around a village green to complement its rural setting.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We are delighted that our plans for Scothern have been approved and we look forward to bringing forward these 30 much-needed new homes.
“The Grange will provide a mix of property types to meet local housing need. We took great care in drawing up our plans for this site to ensure that our scheme both complemented and enhanced the village.
“The frontage of the development and the homes within it have been designed to create an attractive street scene which echoes the character of traditional Scothern. The site plan includes a village green, which the new homes will overlook, and includes the retention of hedges and trees to mitigate the visual impact of the new homes.
“People who have grown up in villages often face the prospect of having to move further afield due to a lack of affordable homes and high property prices, and developments like The Grange will only help to address this issue.
“We look forward to beginning work in the near future on our new homes at The Grange.”
As part of the work on The Grange, Heath Road will be widened and improved in front of the site. The existing footpath will also be extended to provide access to the new development.Back To News
