Developers could be given more time to start work on nine new homes and two shops.
Burghley Developments Limited was granted planning permission in November 2009 to redevelop land at 40 St Paul’s Street, Stamford.
The approval carried a condition that work should start within three years. But the developer applied to extend that time period and South Kesteven District Council’s development control committee will discuss that application on Tuesday.
The site is currently occupied by two buildings facing St Paul’s Street, several extensions to the rear, a number of workshops and a yard area.
The redevelopment would involve creating two new shops facing the street with a flat above. Eight new homes would be built at the rear of the site: three against the eastern boundary and the remainder at the southern end of the site.
All but one of the houses at the southern end would have garages and the existing 10ft arched access from St Paul’s Street would be widened to 16ft.
Council officers have recommended the application to extend the time limit on the plans be approved as there have been no changes to the original plans.
