The fight starts here!
That is the defiant message from campaigners battling to stop a significant new housing development in Horncastle.
The News can reveal developers Gladman have submitted an application to East Lindsey District Council for up to 300 new homes on Langton Hill.
The application also includes provision for public open space, a play area, landscaping and ‘associated infrastructure works’.
The move by Gladman ends weeks of speculation about whether the development would go ahead.
Details of the application appeared on ELDC’s website on Friday.
Residents have formed a campaign group and spokesman David Rice said: “We are ready. The fight starts here.
“We need time to digest the plans and we will take things from there.”
Campaigners say the development will have an adverse impact on the town.
Gladman‘s proposals include official documents regarding a wide range of issues, including the risk of flooding,
ELDC has already received three objections.
