New homes approved in Bourne on site of former gardens
New homes have been approved to be built on land currently used as domestic gardens in Bourne.
Brian Core Building Services of Bourne has gained planning approval from South Kesteven District council to build the homes on 1620m square of land.
The new scheme had attracted comments concerning loss of privacy and over-development.
The site at the rear of 33 to 41 Eastgate is adjacent to Potters Close and takes plots of land currently under multiple ownership.
The developer had originally sought to build a terrace of five two-bed homes, but plans have since been amended to a pair of semis and a terrace of three homes.
The homes have also been re-orientated 90 degrees to face Potters Close.
A council report noted a terrace of five homes had been approved for the site about 10 years ago, but the development never proceeded.
Planning officers concluded existing site was “unremarkable in appearance” and “the scheme would contribute positively to the character of the area”.
