Our proposal is for sixty new homes on the development which is a reserved matter application covering all aspects of the design, access, landscaping and mix of properties.

The consultation will be held at Lea Village Hall, Rectory Lane, Lea, Gainsborough, DN21 5JA on Tuesday 10th September 2019 between 2.30pm and 6.00pm

The proposal currently shows twelve affordable homes incorporated in plans which will be built for and managed by a local housing provider and aimed at those on restricted incomes. These properties will have the same elevational treatments as the market homes so they do not become easily identified as subsidised housing.

The mix of new homes covers an element of family housing, properties ideal for first time buyers looking for their first home and homes for second timers looking to move into larger properties. With thirteen styles of homes on the development there is a good variation in street scene and property type.

The elevational treatment of these new homes is designed to blend into the local vernacular and continue the eclectic feel of the village as it has developed over the years.

There is onsite provision of public open areas and all the homes have a good level of private garden space. The public footpath that crosses the site has been sympathetically incorporated into the design where practically possible whilst maintaining a cohesive sense of space and community to the development.

The existing trees to all of the sites boundaries are being maintained, the new homes are positioned at a distance which will not impact on the future health of the trees.

We intend to plant trees across the site to improve the biodiversity of the development.

Drainage of surface water will be sustainably treated through an infiltration basin which will eventually mature with rushes and planting, encouraging further local biodiversity of wildlife which is currently limited by the existing use of the land.

Access is off Willingham Road and marks a natural extension to the existing development.
