An objection has been lodged to plans to build 70 new homes in Brigg.
Keyo Agricultural Services is applying for outline planning permission to erect the dwellings near Island Carr Road.
Consulted as part of the planning process, Brigg Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee has expressed various concerns and made its views known to North Lincolnshire Council which will make the final decision in due course.
The Town Council suggests "there is a significant flood risk at this site" and has expressed other concerns. The council points to the access being through an industrial area "with poor highways access" and sees this development as being "not in keeping with the environment."
A statement submitted in support of the company's application says the housing mix proposed is:
- Two-bedroom 10
- Three-bedroom 16
- Four-bedroom 30
- Affordable units 14
The statement says: "The proposed scheme has evolved through careful consideration of the site's attributes."
It adds: "A mixture of housing within the site will appeal to a wide range of buyers. The tree-lined entrance will contribute to the street scene and enhance the surrounding area."
The statement also says a drainage scheme has been provided to demonstrate surface water can be discharged in an adequate and sustainable manner, and adds: "The flood mitigation measures will ensure the homes are safe."
