Chance to have a say on new homes plans


Every household in Horncastle has been offered the chance to comment on a raft of controversial plans for new homes in the town.

Officials behind the Horncastle Neighbourhood Development plan believe they have sent a questionnaire to every house within the town boundary.

The questionnaire is included along with an eight page document which features maps outlining all the known development sites for new homes.

The sites include Langton Hill, Mareham Road, Churchill Avenue and Louth Road, which are all subject to proposed developments.

The Neighbourhood Development panel is determined to hear views from as many people as possible.

How people respond will be one of the factors in on-going plans for new developments in the town.

Questionnaires can be posted back or handed in to panel members who will be on duty at their stall at Horncastle’s Christmas Market on Sunday, December 8.

A spokesman for the panel said: “It is a chance for everyone to have a their say. We need to know what people think.”
