Planning applications being considered for 1,500 homes

Lincolnshire village

Jesus College Oxford wants to build 450 homes on land north of Canwick Avenue, and the Church Commissioners for England wants to put up 1,123 homes off Sleaford Road

Two big institutions want to build 1,500 homes in a Lincolnshire village. Two separate planning applications are being considered for the major developments in Bracebridge Heath.

Jesus College Oxford wants to build 450 homes on land north of Canwick Avenue, and the Church Commissioners for England wants to put up 1,123 homes off Sleaford Road.

North Kesteven District Council’s planning committee has been recommended to approve the applications at a meeting on December 7, despite objections from local residents and councils.

Jesus College Oxford wants to develop nearly 70 acres of land, including a primary school and a new roundabout in Canwick Avenue.

The Church Commissioners for England wants to develop 111 acres on three parcels of land, with 6 acres of employment land which could include shops, restaurants, offices and light industrial space, clinics and health centres and leisure facilities.

Both plans had received 36 objections each from residents at the time of the report with concerns over transport, insufficient infrastructure and road networks, and overdevelopment of the area.

Branston and Meres and Canwick Parish Councils have also objected to the larger plans, with both noting a new school should be included, preferably in Canwick Avenue.

Branston and Heighington Parish Councils have objected to the smaller of the developments.

Recommending approval, district council officers said both developments would ‘help satisfy and deliver across a wide range of the economic, social and environmental roles of sustainable development’ and would ‘create a high quality, sustainable development, the residual impacts of which can be appropriately mitigated.

If approved, the 450-home development would need to include 20 per cent affordable housing, along with more than £3,700 per home being spent on sustainable transport, £864 per home on recreation, £308 per home for a new community centre, £632.50 per home on health care and £684.50 per home towards education.
