Homes to go ahead after Government overturn local council

Hundreds of new homes are to be built in a village in North East Lincolnshire, despite a campaign by residents against the plan.

The development at Humberston was turned down by council planners, but overturned on appeal by the Government. The company building the homes say they'll benefit the wider community.

400 hundred new homes are to be built in a north Lincolnshire village, near Cleethorpes, despite a massive local campaign to block the development, and council planners twice rejecting the scheme.

A retirement village plus other new homes have been given the go ahead to be built on greenfield land in Humberston, after the Government overturned North East Lincolnshire Council's planning refusal following an appeal by the developers.

Campaigners to fight homes on green land

Campaigners in North East Lincolnshire say they'll fight against plans to build 400 new homes on four fields on Humberston Avenue. Plans have been submittted by ''Keystone Developments'' to the council's planners.

Residents living in the area say the facilities in Humberston will struggle to cope. If plans go ahead it will be the third new development with a mile of the village.
