Plans for 302-home development on former RAF base set to go before councillors
Plans for more than 300 homes to be built on a former Royal Air Force base in North Lincolnshire are set to go before councillors next week.
Outline planning permission is being sought to develop up to 302 homes on the site, along with public open space and the demolition of existing buildings.
Applicant Green Meadow Limited submitted the application to North Lincolnshire Council’s planning department and the council’s planning committee is expected to discuss the proposals at a meeting next Wednesday (December 6).
Historic England has raised concerns over the heritage of listed buildings on the site and Historic Enviornment Record has issued a holding objection until further information is provided.
The current site is vacant but includes a number of buildings associated with its use as an RAF base, including the sector operations building which was used during the Second World War.
In a report prepared for councillors on the committee, planning officers at the authority say the main issue to consider with the application is whether or not the number of houses proposed would have an adverse impact on highway safety.
