Approval given for affordable home in Deeping St James development

A HOUSING development in Deeping St James took another step forward with an affordable home given the go-ahead.

Larkfleet Homes applied for permission to build an extra affordable property in addition to the four it already has permission for on land to the north of Spalding Road, close to Broadgate Lane.

Planners at South Kesteven District Council approved the development.

It is for a three-bedroom house which will be available on a shared equity scheme with potential for help from the Government.

In the approval document, it said: “The site is considered to be strategically well located in relation to the town centre with alternative means of transport other than the motor car existing in the area.

“The site is also well located in relation to schools, shops, doctor surgery and employment opportunities.”

The property developer, based in Bourne, is building the housing estate, known as The Coppice, in Spalding Road.

Phase one of the development has already sold out with permission also granted for 14 houses in nearby Apple Grove.

The new estate is to be built in Broadgate Lane.
