Public consultation over plans for 1,400 new homes in Sleaford
Members of the public are invited to view plans for 1,400 new homes south of London Road in Sleaford.
The consultation event will take place at the New Life Conference Centre on Mareham Lane in Sleaford on Thursday 29th November from 1pm until 7.30pm.
Landowners, Sleaford Property Developments Ltd are preparing an outline planning application for the development on land to be known as Handley Chase.
A smaller development for the site was originally proposed but following discussions with North Kesteven District Council a larger proposal is expected to be submitted for planning consent in the New Year.
As well as residential dwellings the plans also include a community centre, a residential care home for the elderly, a primary school, sports fields, allotments and appropriate retail space.
David Hindmarch, a Director of Sleaford Property Developments Ltd said: “The Sleaford Masterplan developed by North Kesteven District Council and its partners identifies the need for around 4,000 new homes over the next 25 years, and this proposal is a response to that need.
“We have spent a long time getting this proposal right and we’ve had many meetings with interested parties, including members of Sleaford Town Council.
“It’s very important that we take on board the views of local residents, which is why we’re staging this consultation event.”
The 148 acre site will be located to the south and east of Stumpcross Hill and to the west of the Southfields housing estate.
Handley Chase is named after Sleaford-born Henry Handley MP (1797 – 1846), who represented South Lincolnshire in the House of Commons and to whom a monument was erected in the town.
