North Lincolnshire Council’s Planning Committee voted unanimously to support a proposal for 22 new houses off Applefields in Wrawby.
Whilst the proposal provoked strong opposition from local residents as the site was beyond the settlement curtilage it was acknowledged that the Council is not able to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply. Moreover, it recognised the need to deliver much more housing than had been achieved in recent years and that development at this site, as proposed, constituted sustainable development which would make a valuable contribution in addressing the housing shortfall. It was found that none of the impacts were sufficient to outweigh the clear benefits on offer here.
Permission is granted subject to conditions and a legal agreement to ensure the delivery of affordable housing units and contributions to leisure and open space provision.
