Two more bungalows are to be built in Woodside Avenue, Sleaford, specifically with elderly or disabled tenants in mind.

Designed to take advantage of a triangular plot which was previously used for garaging and more recently for ad hoc parking, the semi-detached bungalows will each have two bedrooms.

Three trees will need to be felled to make way for them, with six trees to be planted elsewhere as a result.

With an identified need for such housing in Sleaford, members of North Kesteven District Council’s planning sub-committee voted by a majority of 14 to three for the scheme to go ahead last Tuesday.

There had been some concern among town councillors that the plot might be too small and could displace parked cars onto the 
street.

However, a spokesman for the district council said: “There is considered to be adequate room for two standard two-bed bungalows here, with some garden.”
