The fourth and final phase of Chestnut Homes’ LN6 development in Lincoln has been given the thumbs up by councillors.

On Wednesday 20th June members of the City of Lincoln Council approved plans for a further 23 homes.

The plans feature 13 two-bedroom semi-detached homes and 10 three-bedroom homes alongside a corridor of green space and a new footpath link to Skellingthorpe Road.

LN6, which was named Residential Project of the Year in 2017 at the Lincolnshire Construction & Property Awards, is being built on part of the former Usher School off Westbrooke Road following its closure in 2008.

Phase four will be built on the land to the south of the existing LN6 development, which had been left vacant since the school’s closure.

It follows on from the third phase, which was approved by the council in May.

David Newton, Managing Director for Chestnut Homes, said: “LN6 has been very popular and all properties are sold on phase 2, so the latest planning permissions allow us to continue to build new homes on this lovely site, which is well located for access into the city centre.

“We’re naturally pleased that the council has given us the go-ahead for phase four, which will not just help us meet demand for local housing but create new public open spaces and improve the local infrastructure.

“Construction work is just starting on our third phase of homes which we hope to launch towards the end of the summer.”

Once the final phase is complete, the development will comprise 132 homes in total.

Final approval is subject to the signing of the Section 106 planning agreement between Chestnut Homes and the City of Lincoln Council, which will see the developer make financial contributions to the community.
