Plans for 150 homes in Lincolnshire village of Fiskerton receives residents’ backing

A patch of agricultural land could be used to construct 150 new homes in a small village just over five miles outside of Lincoln city centre. The site in question is on land north of Corn Close in the village of Fiskerton, spread across 8.13 hectares of land near the village hall and primary school.

The applicant proposes 150 new dwellings, mixed between bungalows and two-storey homes. It is allocated within the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan for housing developments, and would serve as a “natural extension” to the existing village, according to the applicant Deloitte LLP.

It would include multiple lakes and public open spaces but there is no mention within the design and access statement as to how many of these houses will be allocated as affordable. This, it says, will be decided once discussions take place with planning officers.

Multiple residents have voiced their support for the plans. On the council’s planning portal, one wrote: “As a resident of Fiskerton I have looked at the details of this application and feel it is a much-needed development for Fiskerton village, which will allow the village to remain sustainable and develop, well into the future.

“The proposal conforms well with the requirements of the current Central Lincolnshire Local Plan and is well thought through and presented.”

Another wrote: “In my opinion, this is definitely the right place for further development in the village. Roads and pathways are much better suited here.

“It will be safer as further into the village, rather than the outskirts. Great to see numbers improve in the fantastic village school if families were to move in. I look forward to seeing the application being approved.”

According to the 2021 Census, the population of Fiskerton is just 1,201, meaning that could vastly increase with the introduction of more than 100 new family homes. Planning officers at West Lindsey District Council will deliberate over the application and come to a decision in the coming weeks.

The applicant is seeking outline planning permission with all matters reserved, and a series of section 106 agreements are expected to contribute towards potential impact on existing healthcare, education and transport sectors.
