Plans approved for second phase of Lincoln development
Plans for a second phase of a popular new homes development in Lincoln have been given the green light.
City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee gave Chestnut Homes the go-ahead to build a second phase of 27 new homes at its LN6 development at a meeting on Wednesday (8th February).
Scores of people have taken their first step onto the property ladder in the first phase at LN6, where three-quarters of the homes have been sold to first-time buyers.
Construction of phase one, which is being built on a site between Westbrooke Road and Tritton Road, is almost complete. Phase two will be built on an adjacent area of unkempt grassland, and will comprise a mix of two and three-bedroom homes, including bungalows.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “The demand which we have experienced for our homes in phase one at LN6 – particularly from first-time buyers – has demonstrated to us that there is a tangible need for new homes in this area. This led to the submission of our plans for phase two, where the homes will be built to the same quality designs as those in phase one. Our plans incorporate green, open spaces and provide pedestrian access to the nearby woodland, which at present is not available. The plans also include additional pedestrian and cycling routes linking to Tritton Road. Lack of housing supply is an issue nationwide, and we will be building homes to suit a range of buyers – from young couples and families to downsizers – which will help to address this continuing need for new homes.”
Chestnut Homes started building the first phase at LN6 in August 2015, and the development was named Residential Project of the Year at this week’s Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards.
