West Lindsey District Council’s Planning Committee unanimously approved the ‘Reserved Matters’ scheme for the Parklands development in Sudbrooke submitted by Globe Consultants on behalf of Jackson & Jackson Developments. Following the approval of the principle of development at appeal in June 2016, further details were submitted to West Lindsey in relation to the detailed design of the 130 new dwellings, the public house, and Sudbrooke Holme as well as strategies for the extensive areas of open space and landscaping. In recommending approval, planning officers praised the design of the scheme and the positive contribution the scheme would make to the village of Sudbrooke. Members of the Planning Committee agreed with this assessment and resoundingly voted in favour of the application.
The Parklands is an aspirational housing scheme located 5 miles to the north west of the City of Lincoln in the leafy village of Sudbrooke. Globe Consultants worked closely with a team of talented landscape architects, ecologists and designers to formulate proposals for a new residential environment which will be of the highest possible quality. From the outset, Globe recognised the importance of the need to ensure that any development fully respects its context and delivers a scheme which knits together the existing village and more isolated forms of development surrounding the site. As a result, the scheme delivers a lower density solution with generous landscaping and open space throughout – consistent with the leafy parkland nature of development which helps give Sudbrooke its identifiable character. The proposed layout is very much a landscape led scheme which promotes a strong sense of place and identity. It is anticipated the construction work on the Parklands will begin in the next few months.
