New homes planned behind Long Bennington pub


A planning application to build eight houses to the rear of The Royal Oak pub in Long Bennington, has been submitted to South Kesteven District Council.

Applicants Newriver Retail Property Trust are looking to build the eight properties on currently unused grassland, located behind the pub and its car park on the Main Road.

The developers plan to make use of the existing driveway between the pub and car park, which would be extended to create a single access road running the length of the site and with a turning head at the end.

This would serve eight new homes, all with off-road parking, which the applicants state will ensure there is no overflow on to the Main Road.

The proposed properties include a detached three-bedroom house and two semi-detached houses behind the car park and existing barn. Further up the new access road, behind the pub and its garden, they plan to build five detached four-bedroom homes.

All the houses will be two storey dwellings, and two will be affordable housing.

The application acknowledges the presence of several Grade II listed properties close to the site, and states that for this reason and to fit in with the character of the village, the new houses will be traditional in style.

The full planning application is available to view on South Kesteven District Council’s website at tinyurl.com/pdqcdch
