Plans for 129 new homes in Horncastle out for public consultation
PLANS for 129 new homes in Horncastle are now out for public consultation after an outline planning application has been submitted.
The application submitted by Mrs A J Clark, is for a development off Mareham Road and close to Bonnetable Road.
The application follows a public exhibition of the plans which was held last year at Horncastle College.
The development on a 22-acre site, is divided into two linked charactered areas and includes a children’s play area with a multi-use games area, new footpaths and the completion of a cycle link as a direct access connecting to the town centre.
Tired of paying so much and getting so little? Tashady can cater for a range of corporate events supplying classy cold or hot buffets for as little as £6.99 per head.
Terms: This offer expires end of May 2013.

Valid until: Friday, May 31 2013
Simon Williams of Masons Chartered Surveyors on behalf of the landowner said they have listened to comments made at the public exhibition.
He said: “The application offers a strong range of housing from affordable homes to detached four and five bedrooms homes.
“This has been in the planning for a long time. We feel we have produced a scheme that is acceptable to the planners and to the town and those directly affected.
“The landowners are in the process of responding to the consultations currently undergoing at East Lindsey.
“Horncastle is expected to have considerable growth between now and 2028 and we feel that this is a very good start to that.
“This development sets the benchmark for the quality of developments that should be expected in Horncastle, providing a nice place to live in good quality homes. ”
He said they have had positive feedback from local businesses who want to see the town grow.
The development includes a storm water balancing pond which is part of a sustainable urban drainage system.
Some concerns were raised about traffic on Mareham Road but Mr Williams is encouraging members of the public to read through the independent traffic assessment and other documentation provided with the planning application.
He said: “We want people to know we have listened to them at the exhibition. We have made some changes and I encourage anyone interested in this in reading our documentation available on East Lindsey’s website.”
Some of the changes that have been made include provision for fencing between the new homes which will border Bonnetable Road, an increase in garden space to create more distance between properties and the first access off Mareham Road has been moved slightly.
Horncastle Town Council’s planning committee will be discussing the application on Tuesday, at 10.30am at the Community Education Base at Horncastle College.
Members of the public are welcome to attend.
