Plans for 18 affordable homes near Lincoln approved
29 March 2023
Plans have been approved for 18 affordable homes near Lincoln.
We’ve teamed up with local construction firm Lindum Group to deliver the homes in Bassingham.
Our plans have now received approval from North Kesteven District Council at the second attempt and work could begin later this summer.
Marcus Keys, Executive Director of Growth, Development and Assets, said: "This development will provide much-needed affordable housing to the area, so we're delighted to have received approval from the planning committee at the second attempt.
As per our Improving Lives vision, we’re committed to providing the homes people want, where they’re needed most and we believe this development will help us to continue to do just that as do the local community who supported the development from the start.
"The homes will also be made available on multiple tenures, so we'll be creating opportunities for local people who wish to get onto the property ladder.
"I'm grateful to our partners at Lindum Group, who we've worked closely with to re-design these plans, following comments received on the original application and I look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship as the development takes shape."
What does the development include?
The development includes a mix of 10 affordable rent and eight Shared Ownership homes.
These will include one and two bedroom bungalows, as well as two and three bedroom semi-detached houses.
Each property will have its own individual garden space and appropriate private parking provision in what will be a high quality housing development.
Lindum Land and Planning Manager Robert Jays said:
We are thrilled to finally be getting this project off the ground, bringing much needed affordable housing to the village.
“The planning approval is a huge reward for all the hard work that has gone into creating a development that will benefit the village and help provide opportunities for people in housing need.”
