Councillors have thrown out a plan for three bedroom, link detached home in Primrose Crescent, Pinchbeck, because they say it doesn’t fit the street scene.

Applicant Mr M Yould wanted to build the home beside number 13, but councillors described it as “over development”.

Planning committee chairman Coun Roger Gambba-Jones said there were similar developments in Spalding, naming Park Road, Spring Gardens and Spring Street.

He told councillors: “But this isn’t one of those locations. The rest of the properties are far more spacious. It doesn’t appear to work well in that location.”

Coun Christine Lawton said: “That (proposed) house is definitely shoe-horned into that space. It will be a noticeable blot on the landscape.”

Members last night (Wednesday) refused the application by 13 votes to nil.

Ward member James Avery, the committee vice chairman, abstained.
