Residents are being consulted on an outline planning application for a proposed expansion of Sleaford which would include 1,400 homes, plus schools, shops, employment, health and community facilities

The proposals for the Sleaford West Sustainable Urban Extension site include up to 1,400 houses, a care home, a primary school and secondary education facility, employment land, a local centre comprising shops, health centre, community centre, hotel, pub/restaurant, public open spaces and sports pitches.

It is proposed for land east of the A15 and west of The Drove, Stokes Drive, St Deny’s Avenue and Covel Road in Sleaford.
