Stamford housing development approved by SKDC
Plans for a new housing development in Stamford have been approved by South Kesteven councillors.
An application for permission to build 41 new homes on a brownfield site off Uffington Road in the town went before South Kesteven District Council’s development management committee on Tuesday, May 29.
The council’s planning officer had recommended that members approve the application.
The development comes as part of a wider development on the site, which is being built in phases.
Construction is already under way on an 84 bedroom care home and 21 bedroom assisted living block on the site after planning was granted in October 2017.
The new application, which was lodged by William May Developments, is for four one bedroom, seven two bedroom, seven three bedroom, 10 four bedroom and 13 five bedroom homes.
In a design and access statement, the applicant said that the plan would help to provide regeneration to Stamford.
They said: “The development is desirable to provide regeneration to an existing and available Brownfield site, without detrimental impact on existing services and facilities in surrounding area.
“It will provide transient and perpetual economic growth and social consolidation and mobility to Stamford.”
After a brief discussion, councillors voted in favour of the application subject to certain conditions.
Sean Lammiman of Carlton Design Architecture, the agent for the applicant, was present at the committee meeting but declined to comment on the matter.
