New meeting date for controversial plan for 160 new homes in Navenby


Determination of a major planning application for Navenby has been deferred by two weeks to ensure it can be given full and thorough consideration.

Originally scheduled for North Kesteven District Council’s planning sub-committee meeting on June 2, the scheme for 160 homes at Green Man Road in the village, was set to sit alongside another application that has drawn significant public interest at Bassingham.

By separating the two applications across two consecutive committees it is hoped to spread the burden of having too many large, intricate applications going before a single committee.

The Bassingham scheme for 35 homes at Whites Lane will still be considered at 5pm on Tuesday, June 2, with ticketing arrangements as before, to be followed by other schemes from 6.30pm.

The Navenby scheme will now be considered by a committee at 5pm on Tuesday June 16. Admission will be by pre-booked tickets in order to ensure that people who have a particular interest in this scheme are afforded priority.

Tickets already arranged for the June 2 date will be honoured and new applications can be made from 9am on June 8 by calling on 01529 308224. Leave your name, address, contact number and refer to the Navenby scheme and you will be called back. The hotline remains open until all tickets are allocated.

The agenda for the June 16 committee will be published on June 8, and made available on the Council’s website.
