Plan appeal hearing set

A hearing to discuss a developer’s condition to create a green space for Tinkers Green, Burgh le Marsh, in order to comply with planning permission, will be held on June 5.

The controversial plan has been rumbling on for six years and former councillor and builder Doug Newey has been fighting the issue, previously stating he would be forced to bring in the Ombudsman if the appeal was won.

As reported, Stamford Homes North, now Linden Homes North was granted permission in 2008 to build 47 properties in land adjoining Ingoldmells Road and Claremont Road, Burgh le Marsh, but the application came with a requirement for the developer to provide the Local Planning Authority with a management plan for the communal areas associated with the site.

The developer applied to have the condition removed but this was refused by East Lindsey District Council and a breach of condition notice was put in place from December 19,2012. The developers then had until February 19 to submit an appeal which will be dealt with by the Secretary of State through the Planning Inspectorate.

Mr Newey says he intends to be present at the hearing in Skegness Business Centre on June 5 to put forward his concerns.
