Green light for Grantham social housing scheme

New and affordable housing for Grantham has moved a step closer with the granting of planning permission for 21 new homes to be built for South Kesteven District Council (SKDC).

The Larch Close project is part of SKDC’s housing strategy to build much needed homes across the district and will bring a mixture of one-bedroom flats and two to four-bedroom houses, each with their own parking and cycle storage.

The site, owned by SKDC and on the town’s Earlesfield estate, was previously a play area subject to occasional anti-social behaviour.

Replacement public open space planned for the north of the site is scheduled to be planted with wildflowers and native trees and would include a seating area with ornamental planting.

Council Leader Cllr Richard Cleaver said: “South Kesteven District Council is committed to working with our partners to provide good quality affordable new homes that people want and need.

“This development shows that we are moving forward with this in a sustainable way and it is part of series of important projects across the district which are now at various stages of delivery.”

Planning permission was granted subject to a series of conditions relating to deadlines, archaeology, drainage, ecology and landscaping, plus the completion of a Section 106 agreement.
