Holbeach homes and Spalding farm project plans decisions this week
A decision is due this week on plans for 81 homes in Holbeach and an innovative farm project in Spalding.
Ashwood Homes wants permission to build the properties on land east of Chaffinch Way.
As previously reported, South Holland District Council’s officers say the plans should be passed - if the developer pays £404,337 towards education and £54,460 for NHS services.
The applicant has tried to argue that paying towards infrastructure would mean the scheme is not viable.
Objections have been lodged about the traffic impact and the lack of facilities to cope with the new development.
Members of the planning committee will have to rule on this on tomorrow night - with the matter being deferred from December when the meeting was postponed due to Covid.
Another application held over from that meeting was the plan to build an innovative new farm project in Spalding.
Naylors Farms wants to demolish some existing buildings to the south of Low Road and Rangell Gate and build a new plant-based protein extraction facility.
The development would see the farm’s cabbages turned into protein which could be used in a range of business sectors.
Officers recommend councillors give the green light to this scheme.
