BREAKING NEWS: Second Poplar Farm development approved by councillors

The latest planning application for homes at Poplar Farm - between Gonerby Hill Foot and Barrowby Road - was passed by councillors today.

Earlier this month councillors accepted a proposal for 105 homes north of Balmoral Drive.

Today they accepted a proposal for 99 homes to be built next to the Muddle Go Nowhere pub in Grantham, on the pub’s western boundary.

Concerns were raised about the impact on wildlife and added increased traffic on Barrowby Road but the proposal was passed by 14 votes to two.
