The developer that has drawn up plans for 350 new homes in Horncastle says it understands the concerns of residents about the scale of the proposal but insists it will provide much needed housing, in particular affordable homes for local people.
The proposals will provide economic benefits in the form of additional spending for local shops and services, as well as over £2m for the local community from the Government's New Homes Bonus scheme.
The planning application once submitted will include a comprehensive set of technical studies on matters such as drainage, highways, transport, ecology, landscape and archaeology.
