North Kesteven District Council granted planning permission for a new community hub building and playing field pavilion at its planning committee last night.
This was a sensitive project with a section of the local community opposed to the investment and how it had been agreed through the Parish Council and progressed. However, it was a useful reminder of the role of the planning process and the need to focus on material planning considerations only.
On those planning consideration grounds it was concluded unanimously that the proposal was high quality, appropriate and should be supported. At over £1million this is a major project for a settlement of this size and it will deliver a major community asset for this growing community.
