Alongside new homes the outline plans include significant benefits to the local community including the creation of a link road, a variety of highways improvements, a children’s play area, public open space, the provision of a car-free section of the Round Louth Walk, extensive landscaping and wider infrastructure.

The majority of the site is within an area allocated for new homes in the emerging East Lindsay Local Plan, which seeks to identify land for new development in order to meet the area’s housing targets. The application was recommended for approval by the East Lindsay planning authority and was supported by the planning committee at a meeting on 8th March. Planning consultancy De Pol Associates assisted Northern Trust on the application.

Northern Trust will now look to commence a disposal strategy, inviting negotiations with prospective house builders.
