Crossroads Nurseries, Quadring, has received planning permission to build 60 homes on land off Main Road
A Quadring grower has been given the go-ahead to turn one of its sites into a development of up to 60 homes.
Permission for Crossroads Nurseries to redevelop nearly nine acres of land off Main Road was granted by South Holland District Council earlier this month.
The new homes will eventually allow Crossroads Nurseries to expand its other site in Sarah Gate, while creating "an attractive environment for people to live and settle in the village", according to a statement from the firm.
A quarter of the new homes will be made available as affordable housing and agreements are also in place for the development to make financial contributions towards Quadring Cowley and Brown's Primary School, Thomas Cowley High School, Donington, and Gosberton Medical Centre.
The statement said: "The current owners of the site have actively promoted it as being suitable for redevelopment which will enable them to concentrate on the expansion of their nearby premises.
"The provision of housing in the centre of Quadring, where infrastructure is more established, will provide a much-needed mix of housing in terms of type, size and value.
"It is hoped that future residents will make use of the existing facilities that Quadring has to offer and protect their valued contribution to the village.
"This commitment to Quadring by a long-established, privately-owned horticultural business will provide continued local employment and also create an attractive environment for people to live and settle in the village."
