Crowland, Spalding and Long Sutton plans refused while Gedney Hill application is passed

Councillors voted against all but one of the planning applications put before them at a meeting last night (Wednesday).

South Holland District Council’s planning committee unanimously voted to refuse an HMO in Stonegate, Spalding and turned down a retrospective application for a change of use to include dog breeding at a property in North Street, Crowland.

Councillors raised several issues with both applications, including concerns for animal welfare at the Crowland property and car parking around the proposed HMO in Spalding.

Following a lengthy discussion, the committee also threw out an application to build 56 homes on land off Lime Walk in Long Sutton, which was the proposed second phase of a development by Stinders Homes.

Coun Bryan Alcock said he was disappointed with the design, likening it to developments in cities.

He said: “I find it unacceptable, urban in nature and out of keeping with the rural setting.

“It’s not necessary to put that sort of development in this area.”

However, a facility in Gedney Hill which aims to support military veterans while reintegrating them into society was approved.

This was the second time the application had been put to the committee following a deferral on the decision nearly a year ago.
