Major plans for 750 home development in Gainsborough

This story is over

Plans have been submitted for 750 new homes to be built in Gainsborough.

The proposals, submitted by Thonock and Somerby Estates, would see the homes build on land north east of the Highfields roundabout off Corringham Road.

Located to the north of Gainsborough, the site consists of around 50 hectares of greenfield, grade three agricultural land.

If approved, plans would see a new residential development, comprising up to 750 dwellings with associated formal and informal open space and landscaping, built in the area.

New access, junctions, roadways, cycleways, footways and associated infrastructure would also be built as part of the plans.

The site is allocated under the adopted Central Lincolnshire Local Plan as a Sustainable Urban Extension Allocation for the Gainsborough Northern Neighbourhood SUE, where a total of 129 hectares of land is allocated for 2,500 homes.

The proposals will be decided on at a meeting at West Lindsey District Council at a later date.
