More news, no ads


Councillors will be asked to refuse permission to build 45 town homes.

The authority’s planning committee will be asked to turn down plans for 45 homes on land to the north-west of Cedar Drive in Bourne.

Officers said the plan is contrary to a number of planning policies in terms of their layouts and the type of houses they provide.

The Bourne development would be accessed from Cedar Drive, upgrading an existing agricultural entry between numbers 21 and 23.

It would include three separate blocks of developments, however, the layout scale and massing of the homes do not form part of the outline application.

Around 14 of the properties would be classed as affordable.

There have been 206 objections to the plans, including from Bourne Civic Society, the Parish Neighbourhood Plan Group, and Bourne Town Council, along with the ward councillor at Lincolnshire County Council.

Concerns revolve around the impact on Bourne Woods, but also include unsuitable access, impact on the highways, flooding risks and the impact on schools and doctors.

In their committee report, planning officers said the scheme did not form part of an allocated site in the local plan and had not submitted evidence of support. They criticised the adverse impact into the open countryside and the failure to address planning obligations or flooding risks.
