32 Wragby homes go before councillors

This story is over

A plan for 32 homes in Wragby will go before councillors in East Lindsey next week despite concerns from objectors.

The proposals have been lodged by Lincs Design Consultancy for a development on land to the north of Thornfield, Louth Road.

Planning approval is being sought for outline permission for the site and councillors on East Lindsey District Council will decide on the plan at a meeting on June 7.

But Wragby Parish Council have objected to the proposal and said that the application only adds to the excessive number of houses proposed in and around the village.

Objections have also been lodged against proposed access to the site on Queen Elizabeth Street as outlined in the plan.

Those opposed to the application said that the street is notoriously busy and is not suitable for sole access to a development of more than 30 homes.

But the developer said that the site is identified in the council’s housing strategy and is suitable for development.

They added that the village is suitable for a development of its kind.

In a supporting statement to the council, they said: “The large village of Wragby is a sustainable location for development and has a range of residential amenities including shops, library, community hub, medical facilities, playing fields, cafes/takeways, public houses, church and primary school.”
