Horncastle Town Council last week voted in support of Larkfleet Homes’ proposal to build 80 houses on land off Louth Road.

Seven councillors voted that the application be supported, but highlighted some issues and concerns which would need to be addressed before planning permission would be granted.

The conditions are:

*that Larkfleet pays for the installation of a new foot and cycle path on the west-hand side of Louth Road

* that Lincolnshire County Council Highways moves to 30mph sign to the far edge of the development, and continue street lighting

* the proposed road link from the west-hand side of the development through to any further developments be removed to ensure a rat run was not created

*construction was only carried out during normal working hours from Monday to Friday

* that Section 106 agreements be put in place to meet additional capacity needs in schools and doctors surgeries and that this money remain in the town

*that East Lindsey District Council receives sufficient evidence and assurances that it can safely remove all foul drainage and surface water from the site.

Councillor Fiona Martin abstained from voting as she sits on the ELDC planning committee.

Larkfleet spokesman Tim Slater said: “We are very pleased that the Horncastle Town Council are supportive of our plans.

“We hope that this demonstrates our commitment to the community consultation process and the quality of our proposal.

“We will seek to address the issues that have been raised so far with ELDC in our further discussions.”
