Have your say

A plan to build 3,700 homes with schools, shops and offices as part of the southern quadrant in Grantham has been submitted.

Buckminster Trust Estate has submitted the plan for outline planning permission which includes sheltered housing and extra care accommodation. The plan also includes up to 110,000 square feet of employment space and a primary school and secondary school.

Also planned are a restaurant, pub, takeaway, police room, health centre and creche, a community hall and gym.

Areas have also been allocated for playing fields and changing rooms, children’s play areas, allotments, woodlands, wildlife habitat areas, as well as roads, footpaths, cycleways, car and cycle parking. Utility services will include electricity substations and pumping stations.

The site is situated between the A52 Somerby Hill and Spittlegate Level. The new southern bypass, which will link Somerby Hill roundabout with Spittlegate Level, will pass alongside the new site. Work on the bypass is due to start next year.
