This story is over

Revised plans have been submitted for an ambitious development in Sleaford, consisting of 1,400 homes, two schools, a restaurant, and a hotel.

The plans, submitted by Drove Landowners Partnership (DLP), would see the homes built on land east of the A15, west of The Drove, Covel Road, Stokes Drive, St Deny’s Avenue and south of Holdingham.

If plans are approved, the new site would also see:

  • Primary school
  • Secondary school
  • Employment land
  • Family restaurant/public house
  • 40 bed hotel
  • Health centre
  • Shops and a community centre
  • Public open space
  • Outdoor sports facilities

There would also be the creation of new roundabout onto the A15, with highway improvements to Drove Lane and St Deny’s Avenue.

This application is for one of two extensions proposed for Sleaford as part of a strategy to deliver over 4,400 new houses, additional employment land and infrastructure improvements to the town over the next 20 years in line with the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan and the adopted Sleaford Masterplan.

Councillors will discuss the plans at a later date.
