Residents continuing to oppose 40-home scheme in Winterton as plans are tabled
Land south of Coates Avenue in Winterton where 40 new homes are being proposed
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 13 Sep 2018
Residents say they will continue to oppose proposals to build 40 new homes in Winterton.
Partner Construction has formally submitted plans for the properties, including 32 affordable homes, on land to the south of Coates Avenue.
Residents in the area last year opposed a plan for 62 homes on land then described as being off Enterprise Way which were put forward by Dean Property Group.
That application was refused by North Lincolnshire Council after several objections and a 427-signature petition, and the new plans follow a consultation event held by Partner Construction in June.
A design and access statement submitted with the Partner Construction application states its vision is to "create a sustainable addition to the existing village of Winterton and an economically viable development which meets the needs of the local community with affordable homes while achieving good levels of fitness for purpose in its appropriateness to its location and creates a pleasant place in which to live."

But a statement from the Residents Against Development of Land off Coates Avenue group said: "We are very disappointed to see that Partner Construction has applied for planning permission to build 40 homes on the land off Coates Avenue, Winterton.
"Residents attended a consultation event when they revealed their plans earlier this year and strongly voiced their objection.
"We will continue to strongly oppose this development due to the unsuitability of the site, and encourage residents to object on the North Lincolnshire Council website and sign our petition.
"Winterton is experiencing an influx of housing development applications at an unsustainable rate. The town's historic infrastructure and services are unable to cope with an increase in demand."
"Winterton has a population difference of 500 compared with Brigg, however the two towns services and infrastructure are incomparable. Consideration is not being given to the cumulative effect of multiple developments.
"It is down to residents to voice their concerns to see this application rejected."
