80 new homes on the agenda


Planning officers at East Lindsey District Council are expected to give the go-ahead for a major new housing development in Horncastle.

Bourne-based Larkfleet Homes already has outline permission for 80 homes at a site off Louth Road.

Now, the company has submitted an application to ELDC for full planning permission.

The new development will be based on a site to the west of Louth Road.

The application includes provision for several styles of properties, including 22 detached homes.

There will also be a children’s play area and a pumping station to ease flooding issues.

Horncastle Town Council supported the project, while NHS England has submitted a letter calling for a contribution of £32,560 towards medical services in the town.
