Housing Development, Hykeham Road, Lincoln

  • Client:
    Lindum
  • Local Authority:
    City of Lincoln Council

This application proved complex and controversial because, whilst the site had been allocated for housing within the local plan, some local residents felt that the site was an important area of open space, that there was a high degree of flood risk and the site could not be safely accessed. The application included detailed and objective information on these matters and planning permission was granted, delivering an attractive new housing development in this popular part of the city. Substantial areas of the landholding were retained for open space and secured for the long term alongside effective management and maintenance in the interests of amenity and biodiversity.
