Latest plans for 130 new homes revealed

Have your say

DESIGNS for the latest homes planned for Spalding’s Wygate Park estate have been revealed by developer Taylor Wimpey East Midlands.

The company has put forward an application to South Holland District Council to seek approval of detailed plans for 130 homes.

The 22-hectare site, which is to the south of the existing development, was originally given outline permission as part of a 670-home development in 2003.

This latest application seeks approval for details such as building design, layout, landscaping and parking.

The plans state: “Development will enable Taylor Wimpey East Midlands to provide employment opportunities in Spalding within the construction industry and deliver a key component of the Wygate Park South scheme.

“The applicant welcomes the opportunity to consider amendments to elements of the approved scheme to reflect a change in circumstances from when the outline application was approved, notably with regard to the maintenance of public open space, refuse collection provision and parking provision and is committed to maintaining liaison on these issues.”

According to the plans submitted to the council, the development will be predominantly two-storey houses with two, three and four bedrooms.

Of the 130 homes, 26 of them have been earmarked as affordable housing.

Existing outline planning permission for Wygate Park includes public open space, a community centre, a primary school and other “infrastructure operations”.

Developers have been given outline permission for building works on the estate until 2013.

This is the second application revealing in-depth designs for Wygate Park in recent months. Councillors approved plans for 161 properties by Allison Homes Eastern in April.
