New homes in Lincolnshire to go-ahead


Thursday 22nd April 2010

New home developers have been given the green light to construct 2,250 new homes, as part of the Holland Park development in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

South Holland District Council granted Broadgate Homes Ltd outline planning consent for the new homes development, which will be built over the next 20 years and eventually stretch from The Broadway to the B1172 at Spalding Common.

In addition to the construction of new houses and new flats, a primary school will be built, along with a district centre and open green spaces.

The plan comprises three distinct neighbourhoods - St John's View, Fantail Park and South Drove Village.

Around £24m will be invested into the community, equating to approximately £10,600 per new home.

Proposals for the scheme in Spalding have been eight years in the making.

Broadgate Homes' chief executive Ian Canham commented: "This development will be good for South Holland and of course good for us, but there will be a lot of hard work involved.

"Most of the people who work for us are local, so this secures their futures and provides for Spalding for the next 20 years."

The project will include some 750 affordable homes.
