Plan for homes at garden centre site


A planning application has been submitted to West Lindsey District Council for 23 new homes next to The Willows Garden Centre in Gainsborough Road, Glentham.

Prospect Place Ltd wants to build the dwellings - including some small ‘affordable homes’ - on land to the north and west of the garden centre.

A planning statement said: “The overall mix would favour smaller dwellings to respond to local needs, typically two or three bedrooms.”

The proposal says the homes would be ‘environmentally, socially and economically sustainable’ and would contribute to growth objectives of West Lindsey, Central Lincolnshire and national government.

It goes on to state: “The external appearance and scale of the dwellings will reflect the prevailing character and appearance evident in the village ... with an appropriate degree of soft landscaping using native species.”
