North Lincolnshire Council decides on new homes as neighbours raise privacy fears
Planners at North Lincolnshire Council have given permission for two new homes despite concerns over privacy and plot layout.
Two new five-bedroom homes will be built on North Street, West Butterwick, on the site of a derelict bungalow.
The council’s planning committee passed the application at Wednesday’s meeting (May 24).
Local residents said they do not object to developing on the site but raised concerns over the layout of the site.
Councillor David Rose called in the application on the grounds of concerns from local residents. He said: “In principle there is no objection to the sit,” he said.
“The current building is on an old bungalow and it does need to be demolished and housing seems to be a solution.”
Councillor Rose added that the main concern is that the dwellings seem to be at the front of the plot layout on the site rather than in the middle as other homes are in the same area.
“Number 51 is too close to the road,” he said.
He added that local residents would feel their privacy is lost due to the position of the homes. But the planning officer said that the reason for the position of the site is due to part of the site being agricultural land.
The committee asked whether or not conditions could be put in place to rearrange the plot layout. However, Councillor Mick Grant said that the application should be judged on its own merits.
