A £325,000 contribution towards health care provision in Holbeach has been agreed as part of plans to build up to 185 homes in the town.

South Holland District Council planning committee members confirmed the deal in relation to new housing off Battlefields Lane, Holbeach, initially given approval in January 2013.

Meanwhile, the committe has asked for more details on a plan to build ten homes in Campains Lane, Deeping St Nicholas.

Planning committee members fear potential problems for drivers because of the road’s narrowness if the homes are built under plans by R.C. Tinsley Ltd of Stamford.

Another decision put back for more information concerned plans for three new homes in Bridge Road, Sutton Bridge.

The deferral was due to parking concerns at the proposed site and planning committee member Coun Bryan Alcock said: “Everybody will be driving across everybody else’s front doorway and the turning facilities mean you’ll be turning around on someone else’s land.”
