Seagate Homes refused permission to build 29 homes in Quadring

A builder has been refused permission to build on the outskirts of a village – five years after it had originally gained permission.

Seagate Homes had applied to South Holland District Council to put up 29 homes on a piece of land off St Margaret’s in Quadring – which was refused by members of the planning committee on Wednesday.

In 2019, the developer had been given the go-ahead to put up 34 homes on this section of land but this permission has now run out.

Members of the planning committee were told at Wednesday’s meeting that at that point the council had been unable to demonstrate a five year supply of housing and that it falls outside of the current settlement boundary dictated under the South East Lincolnshire Local Plan.

Coun Sophie Hutchinson expressed concerns about the lack of contributions for the NHS and education while the access, which runs past a play area, was a worry for Coun Thomas Sneath.

He said: “Having the main entrance to a housing estate could lead to a nasty accident or worse. It doesn’t feel right to have an access off the road into a play area.”
