WESTON PARISH COUNCIL: Homes plan for Weston Hills faces objections
A plan to build five homes on farmland in Weston Hills face s opposition due to the risk of losing a previously undeveloped site in the village.
Pinchbeck developer Applegate Homes has applied to build what it describes as a "modest development" of homes in Broadgate.
In a report on its plans to South Holland District Council, Applegate said: "The proposal would make the most efficient use of the site, whilst providing a sustainable form of development which would contribute to the established community within the area.
"It would see the use of the land changed from agricultural to residential and, given the proximity to other homes, it is considered that residential use on this site would be appropriate.
"The application is a scheme which seeks to identify that this would be a high quality redevelopment proposal."
But during a meeting at Weston Hills Village Hall last Monday, the chairman of Weston Parish Council described the scheme as the potential loss of farmland.
Chairman Coun Richard Pratt said: "We have to hang on to agricultural land as much as we can and I can't see why they should just develop on it."
