Good support for homes

Have your say

A group set up to bring 14 new “community homes” to Pinchbeck says suggestions made by residents at an open meeting will be considered as it progresses its plans.

More than 80 people found out more about Pinchbeck Community Land Trust’s plans for the new homes at an event last week.

Those who attended were able to share their views 
and ask questions of the developers and architects, as well as representatives of Lincs Rural Housing Association, which will manage the house letting.

The new homes, which would be available to rent for the people of Pinchbeck at an affordable rate, could be built on the “Flaxmill Field”, with access off Flaxmill Lane.

Steve Colby, chairman of Pinchbeck CLT, said: “We were delighted with the response and I am happy to say there was general support for the development.

“We recorded lots of useful suggestions from visitors who came to see the plans and ask questions.”

More than three quarters of those who attended also signed up as shareholders in the CLT, which allows them to vote at general meetings.

All income received by the CLT will be used for projects in the community.
