Globe is delighted to have recently received the final of three planning permissions to facilitate the development of a new medical centre, Lincolnshire Co-Operative Food Store and up to 80 no. dwellings on land south of Stallingborough Road, Keelby, Lincolnshire.
Working on behalf of Brocklesby Estate, Globe provided considerable input to each of the three separate applications which were submitted to West Lindsey District Council for consideration in September 2019. In addition to coordinating and arranging the necessary levels of technical input required for a ‘major’ development of this nature, Globe also led the community consultation process which encouraged members of the local community to provide their thoughts and comments on the proposals. This engagement process played an integral role in shaping and refining the proposals before the three planning applications were submitted to West Lindsey District Council. Globe then detailed the outcomes of this process within a standalone Statement of Community Involvement, which was submitted to the Council alongside Globe’s additional Supporting Planning Statement and Health Impact Assessment reports.
Globe also played a key role in formulating the wider strategy in advance of submitting the planning applications, advising that each of the three elements should be submitted as a separate application in order to de-risk each element as well as ensuring the food store and medical centre were not bound to any planning obligation associated with the residential element – this approach was integral in allowing early delivery of the food store in advance of other elements of the wider masterplan coming forward.
Globe Director James Rigby, who led oversaw the applications through to determination, was delighted with the Council’s approval of the permissions and commented:
“These permissions provide a real opportunity to allow Keelby to grow in a sustainable manner over the next 10-20 years. Alongside providing much needed new market and affordable housing, the proposals provide a new hub for both the existing and proposed communities which will be anchored by a new convenience store and medical centre. We worked closely with the planning officers at West Lindsey District Council throughout this process and I am delighted that a successful outcome was achieved on all three applications”.
Schemes of this nature can be complex, and our specialist knowledge can guard against delays and maximise the chances of successful outcomes through the planning process. If you own any land and are interested in potentially developing your property to provide a similar (or alternative) scheme, please do not hesitate to get in touch and a member of the Globe team will be happy to provide informal, initial advice on how best to progress with such a proposal.
