Plans tabled for up to 48 new homes in Hibaldstow

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 13 Sep 2018

Up to 48 homes could be built in a North Lincolnshire village after plans aimed at improving the region's housing supply were tabled.

Developer Maltgrade Ltd has submitted a planning application to build the homes on Station Road in Hibaldstow.

Currently, the site is allocated as "countryside" and lies between two housing developments in the village.

However, the site is earmarked for housing under an upcoming local plan which is expected to be put before North Lincolnshire councillors at a later date.

The plan will outline the authority's ambition for housing in future years and work as guidance for deciding on planning applications submitted to North Lincolnshire Council.

A mix of housing is proposed for the village site, including bungalows and two-storey houses.

Around 10 per cent of the properties have also been allocated for affordable housing.

The applicant said in a planning statement that the development is sustainable given the authority’s lack of housing land supply over the next five years.

It said: "Overall, the application is proposing a sustainable form of development in a sustainable location.

"The site is suitable for development with no constraints to its availability nor its achievability in an orderly timescale."

North Lincolnshire Council will consider the application at a later date.
