Plans to demolish 26 garages and build four new council homes have been approved.

South Kesteven district councillors gave the green light to the council’s own plans at a development control committee meeting yesterday (Tuesday).

The council wants to knock down its garages in Glen Crescent, Stamford, and build three two-storey houses and a bungalow in their place.

The terraced homes would all be two-bedroom and would have rear gardens and six off-road parking spaces between them.

They will be the first council houses built in Stamford in about 15 years.

The development control committee also approved an extension on planning permission to build nine new homes and two shops on land at 40 St Paul’s Street, Stamford.

Permission was originally granted in November 2009 but economic conditions meant Burghley Developments Limited had not been able to start work since then.

The committee deferred a decision on plans to install 2,192 solar panels on land to the west of Casewick Lane, Tallington, so they could visit the site.

And they refused plans to replace a bungalow in Castlegate, Castle Bytham, with a two-storey home.
