Homes plan features car parking for village school
Plans have been drawn up for 74 new houses in Dunholme.
If given the go-ahead, the homes would be built close to Dunholme St Chad's Primary School in the village.
An application has been sent to West Lindsey District Council for land next to Ryland Road.
The development would include a range of homes from 30 affordable houses to 23 with four or more bedrooms.

The proposed site in Dunholme also borders the neighbouring village of Welton.
A previous planning application for eight houses on the same site was refused in 1995.
At the time, the planning authority decided the land was "a very important gap" between Dunholme and Welton and raised concerns about the villages losing their separate identities if new homes were built on the gap between them.
Charles Pickering, who has submitted the planning application and lives in Ashing Lane, Dunholme, says the new plans will prevent the two villages being merged into one.
This is because nothing will be built on a strip of land between the two villages, which will then be protected by placing the plot in public ownership.
Mr Pickering said: "We have gone the other way and found a solution to allow villages to keep themselves apart.
"Instead of the land being in private ownership, it will be public. It will be donated either to a village trust or the parish council for community use."
Mr Pickering also plans to set aside part of the plot to create extra parking spaces for parents of pupils at Dunholme St Chad's Primary School.
He added: "Dunholme St Chad's Primary School has shown strong interest in our proposals for off-street parking, as it has real problems at school times.
"We had proposed 12 spaces at a public consultation meeting. People who used the school felt it was not sufficient, so we doubled it up to 24."
A footpath also runs along the site which connects Ryland Road to William Farr School and to shops in Welton.
Mr Pickering added: "Probably by next summer we'd like to be building."
Sue Rawlins, district councillor for Dunholme, said residents still had some concerns.
"They need to look at surface water drainage and water structure," she said.
"My point of view is that 74 houses is overdeveloped."
West Lindsey District Council said the proposals won't go forward to a planning committee until at least September.
