Full planning permission to build 31 houses on vacant land off Caunt Road, Grantham, was granted by SKDC’s planning committee on Tuesday.

The site, formerly part of the BMARC factory, is land that was originally outlined for development as part of a Springfield Road housing scheme.

All 31 homes are to be affordable housing units, offered either for rent or for shared ownership. They will be a mixture of two- and three-bedroom properties, and one-bedroom flats.

In a report to the committee, affordable housing officer Mandy Gee said she welcomed the development by applicants Longhurst Group and Grantham Estates, stating: “The district council is working with the applicants to build this affordable homes scheme, which will be nominated from the council’s housing register.

“The nomination agreement will include a cascade to offer the affordable housing units to applicants with a direct connection to Grantham in the first instance, thereafter to other applicants who have a direct connection to the South Kesteven area.”
