Plans have been drawn up to build 29 homes on the site of a disused farm in Grantham.

The venture involves the construction of a mix of two and three-bedroom homes on land at Spittlegate Farm, in Gorse Lane.

The 0.84 hectares site lies between the Grantham Preparatory School and Heath Farm.

The venture has been put together by Spittlegate Developments Ltd and involves the demolition of the existing farm house and some redundant buildings.

The applicants plan to provide 23 new build dwellings in blocks of three plus six dwellings from the conversion and extension of existing barns. There will be 15 two-bedroom homes and 14 three-bedroom homes.

The plans have been submitted to South Kesteven District Council.

In addition, the developers propose to create an improved vehicle access from the site on to Gorse Lane.

There will be parking spaces for 44 cars on site and each dwelling will be able to store bicycles.

There will also be provision for a bus dropping-off point on site.

The developers also plan to install a proper footpath with street lighting from the site to Gorse Lane’s junction with Spittlegate Level.
