11 NEW HOMES GIVEN GO AHEAD AS BRIGG AREA CONTINUES TO PROVE POPULAR WITH DEVELOPERS
The popularity of Brigg and surrounding villages with house-builders continues as they seek to meet the demand for places to live.
In two adjacent villages, 11 new homes have just been given the go ahead.
West Lindsey District Council planners have granted outline permission for seven dwellings on land adjacent to Roebuck, on Brigg Road, North Kelsey, and they have approved up to four to go on land off North End Lane, South Kelsey.
For the latter, Brigg town centre company Brown & Co (pictured above) acted as agent for the successful applicant.
However, the West Lindsey authority has refused an application for one property to be built on land adjacent to Ravendale House, Owmby Lane, North Kelsey Moor.
One of the reasons given was: "The site is in an unsustainable countryside location and no justification or evidence has been submitted to demonstrate that the proposed dwelling is essential to the effective operation of a rural operation."
Plans to build four new homes in Wrawby have been turned down by North Lincolnshire Council.
The 'semis' were earmarked for land at Hillborn House, Brigg Road (off the A18).
One of the reasons given by the council for refusal was "the proposal conflicts with the existing built form in this location and would be of detriment to the character and appearance of the countryside."
Wrawby Parish Council objected "on the grounds that the proposed development is outside the Development Building Line" for the village.
Any person or company refused planning permission by a local authority may choose to lodge an appeal to be decided by a planning inspector.
