Air quality concerns surrounding 70-home development near Grantham are disproved
A warning over air quality, which saw a 70-home development on the A1 at Colsterworth shelved last month, has been disproved by South Kesteven District Council officers.
Colsterworth parish councillor Mark Ramage told the authority’s planning committee that the site of the outline proposals, submitted by Quality Solicitor on behalf of the estate of the late Susan Goffin, had a level of nitrogen dioxide 40 per cent above European standards.

His comments caused concerns among councillors who asked for the plans to be deferred.
