Planning applications

A planning application for live-in work units at Kirkby Cum Osgodby has been resubmitted by agents acting for North Wolds County Councillor Tony Turner.

The application is now for two not three units, which were refused West Lindsey District Council in July as it would harm the visual gap between Kirkby Cum Osgodby and Kingerby.

In a report, agents Lincoln-based Truelove properties, noted some planning committee support for two units. The plan would let Coun Turner’s family members to live in one unit, which would also be used for a fencing business. Selling the other unit would fund the new unit for the business and provide housing suitable for the area.

If the latest plan was approved, further applications would be made to amend the use of agricultural outbuildings at Manor Farm, Kingerby, and Jesmond Farm, Kingerby, to store items for the business and for stables and paddocks.

Coun Turner told the Rasen Mail he has never applied as a councillor and he did not think it was “appropriate to discuss my new application before the Planning Committee meets.”

“The new application gives me many more difficulties,” he said.
