Plans are being submitted this week by South Kesteven District Council for 21 new homes in Grantham for people on the Council’s housing register.
The proposal, for land next to Larch Close on the town’s Earlesfield Estate, is reduced from the originally envisaged 35-home development following local consultation.
If planning permission is granted, it will be a mixture of one-bedroom flats and two to four-bedroom houses, each with their own parking. There will also be an additional nine visitor spaces.
A spokesperson for South Kesteven District Council said: “There is a need for good quality social housing in this area and we are putting forward the Larch Close development to help meet some of that demand.
“These homes are designed to meet the Lifetime Homes standard and will support the needs of residents, now and in the future.”
SKDC conducted face-to-face consultation with residents at public meetings as well as inviting comment by phone, email or letter. There will be a further opportunity for interested parties to comment during the upcoming planning process when any formal objections can be submitted.
