A pair of semi-detached homes can be built in Spalding after planning permission was approved.

The pair of properties can be built on land next to 37 St Thomas’s Road, which is also owned by the applicant.

The homes will be built behind an existing laurel hedge, close to the rear of a retail unit on Holbeach Road and a C-shaped driveway will run along the east side of the plot from the forecourt parking to the rear of the garden.

Outline planning permission was granted in November 2011, after two previous applications for a single dwelling at the site were turned down.

The applicant’s agent, Alan Finch, told the committee that the demolition of a single-storey outbuilding at the back of the existing property would be “a sensible and positive use of derelict land” and added that as parking space is at a premium in the area of Spalding, it “was a primary objective to achieve parking within the scheme”, adding that the proposed driveway width “is comparable with some of the larger houses in the district”.

Officers concluded that despite some concerns regarding the driveway and parking space provision, the layoutof the new private road was considered acceptable by officers.
