Revised plans for a huge new housing development consisting of 151 homes in Ingoldmells have been approved.
East Lindsey District Council has given one of Britain’s largest housebuilders, Kier Homes, the planning green light to build 151 homes - of various sizes and styles - on land off Anchor Lane.
This was a revision of a long-standing planning approval for the development and therefore did not go before the authority’s planning committee but was determined by senior case officer Paul Thompson under delegated powers.
East Lindsey District Council explained that this was because the development had already been approved.
A spokesperson for East Lindsey District Council explained said: “This isn’t a new planning consent as such. A housing development for Anchor Lane was approved in the 1980s – the application was still valid as the developer had started the development.
“The developer Kier Homes recently came forward to request an amendment to their original planning consent to include a reduction in the number of homes on the site and the introduction of flood mitigation to the scheme.
“Therefore, the latest planning consent, by today’s standards, is better than that of the original permission from the 1980s.”
The revised plans include one detached house, 20 pairs of semi-detached homes, 65 terraced properties and 26 detached homes with a destached single garage.
There will also be 11 detached homes with attached garages and four pairs o semi-detached properties with integral single garages.
