Plans to see 53 new homes in Waddington

Local construction company Lindum and Lincolnshire-based housing provider Longhurst Group are behind proposals which could see 53 new homes built on an empty field off Brant Road in Waddington.

If approved, new two, three and four-bedroom homes would be built on a section of land between a flood plain and existing homes on Brant Road.

The scheme would be very similar to the highly successful development on the corner of Brant Road and Station Road, which has proved to be a very welcome addition to the local community.

Lindum Group Development Manager Graham Daubney said: “’Further to our highly successful project with Longhurst Group on Boolean Fields we are aware of the need for this kind of development in Waddington.

“It will provide a unique opportunity for people in the area, including young families and key workers, to get a foot on the housing ladder in these difficult times.

“It is in flood zone one, which means it has a less than 1 in 1,000 chance of flooding.

“It was also not affected by surface water caused by heavy rainfall in the area in February 2019.

If approved, the scheme would include public open space with a play area as well as extensive landscaping to help blend the development into the existing surroundings.

The homes would be available on a range low-cost tenures such as affordable rent and Shared Ownership.

Nick Worboys, Director of Development and Sales at Longhurst Group added: “We know from the response we received to our Boolean Fields development that affordable housing is sorely needed and much sought-after in this area.

“We’re proud to say that development has proved incredibly popular, helping many residents in the locality to access housing, either for sale or across affordable tenure types, and become part of a real community.

“If approved, the proposed scheme would provide another fantastic opportunity for even more local people, who might otherwise be priced out of taking their first steps on the housing ladder, to find a place to call home.”
