New homes to be built in Wragby


The go-ahead has been given to an outline application for 30 new homes to be built on the outskirts of Wragby.

The scheme , off Louth Road, has generated objections from some residents concerned about potential “community, amenity and road safety issues”.

But, at an East Lindsey planning meeting, members overwhelmingly backed the recommendation of case officer jJane Baker that the proposed development - on a 1.5-hectare grassed field - should be approved.

She said: “The application site lies in a sustainable location to the north-east of the village and could provide a development that would reflect the character of Wragby.”

Assuming the project goes ahead, the developers will be invited to contribute £12,210 towards the enhancemt of local healthcare facilities and £67,658 towards increasing the capacity of the primary school.

The successful applicants are Messrs M. Phillipson and J. Powell.
