Plans for housing development in Messingham lead to 39 letters of objection

Just one letter of support has been received for the development

A planned six-home development in Messingham has met with 39 letters of objection.

Plans have been submitted to North Lincolnshire Council to build the four-bedroom properties on land north of Thistle Downe, Scotter Road.

The proposals seek outline planning permission for the six detached properties including integral garages.

Just one letter of support has been submitted for the proposals, while 39 letters in objection to the plans have been received by the council.

Objectors say that the development would impact on the quality of life on surrounding neighbours and would see an increase in noise and disturbance.

Further objections were made on the grounds that village infrastructure would not be able to handle further housing and that local wildlife would be affected by the development.

Messingham Parish Council has also objected to the development on the grounds of highways concerns and further properties facing the A159 Scotter Road.

Concerns have also been raised in regards to the sewerage system and increased pressure on the current system.

However, the letter of support received for the application states that there is a need for homes in the village and says the development will not affect anyone.

North Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee will hear the application at a meeting at the Civic Centre in Scunthorpe on Wednesday (September 20).
