Plans proposed for 163 new homes in Scunthorpe

A planning application has been submitted proposing to build 163 new homes in Scunthorpe.

The proposed development, which is currently 19.74 acres of disused greenfield, sits on the northern edge of Scunthorpe and to the south of Phoenix Parkway.

Located approximately 1.2 miles to the north of Scunthorpe’s town centre, it is hoped that the new development will compliment and enhance the already existing residential areas local to the site.

The scheme would see the construction of a mixture of two, three and four bedroom two-storey houses, both semi-detached and detached with adjoining garages in some cases.

Specifically, the scheme proposes to construct 34 two-bedroom, 97 three-bedroom and 32 four-bedroom homes, and each dwelling is set to be provided with at least two off-road parking spaces.

Currently bound by mature hedgerows, the site has no existing car access, and the scheme hopes to create a single access point for both vehicles and pedestrians for the site off Phoenix Avenue towards the South East corner of the site.

The developers said: “The proposed scheme seeks to complement the existing residential areas within the site’s locality, particularly the existing development off Normanby Road to the South-East of the site.

“The proposed site will complete the street scene through careful use of materials which complement the surrounding locale, along with similarities in separation distances and the overall layout of the proposed site.”
