Ron Johnson (Horncastle)
‘There are more than enough houses for sale in Horncastle now.
‘Why do we want so many new homes if they can’t sell the ones available now? I like Horncastle as it is.
‘We don’t want more estates.’
Sue Taylor (Horncastle)
‘I work for a local business and it would be great to see more people in the shop. My son is at a local school and as far as I know, there aren’t any spare places.
‘That would be a worry.’
Ray and Madge Fisher (Wragby)
‘Developers have spoiled Wragby with all the new houses and I’d hate to see that happen to Horncastle. I don’t know where the jobs would be.
‘It would probably mean people driving to Lincoln and I’m not so sure the roads could cope.
‘Have you tried driving from Horncastle to Wragby during the summer holidays? It’s a nightmare.’
John Harrison (Horncastle)
‘I’d welcome anything to boost Horncastle.
‘It needs something. The place is dying on its feet for people my age (23).
‘It needs livening up. Young people - including families - are leaving because there’s nothing for them - jobs or anything.
‘Perhaps more people would see a few more restaurants, even a nightclub.
‘We have to go to Lincoln for a good night out - and there’s no bus back.’
Lee Chambers (Horncastle)
‘I’ve no objections to the new homes but I do worry about the impact on local services - not least schools and the doctors.
‘Flooding is another big issue.
‘Every time it rains now my parents worry because their house flooded last year. I’d like to see the plans for the drains.’
Sarah Anderson (Skegness)
‘I think they’d be better building new homes in areas where there’s the businesses to support local jobs.’
Steve Robinson (Louth)
‘I’m sure they’ll say the new homes will boost the economy but where will everyone park to use the local shops.
‘Only the traffic wardens would be happy. It’s a nightmare now.’
Carol Metcalfe (Coningsby)
‘I’d like to see more new homes but only if they are affordable for local people on local wages.
‘We rent at the moment but we’d love to look at any new homes - if we could get a mortgage.’
Colin Samuel (Horncastle)
‘I’ve lived around here all my life and they’ve spoiled it already.
‘Kids racing about in noisy cars. You can’t cross the road for traffic.
‘Why do we need more houses? Leave Langton Hill as it is.’
