A parish council is opposing plans to “reduce the eco specifications” of 87 homes due to be built on the former Butterfly Park at Long Sutton, but South Holland District Council officers are recommending consent is given at Wednesday’s planning committee.
An objection from Long Sutton Parish Council says: “The specifications should not be reduced by a series of amendments to the original plan to stealthily make it more profitable or viable to potential buyers of the land.
“The council still strongly oppose any development to the site and the vociferous opposition by the residents of the town should be re-considered.”
Amended plans from the Butterfly and Wildlife Park say the carbon dioxide emissions will be kept to the original level – but the build will be on a lower energy scale.
Councillors are recommended to approve the plan subject to the provision of 17 affordable homes and an “education contribution of £237,881”.
