Plans to build 18 affordable homes on the site of the former Jacko’s pub in Trent Road, Grantham, have been submitted by the district council.

The homes are part of a bigger plan to build a new combined community and youth centre to replace the existing two buildings nearby.

A later phase of the plan also includes a new and improved community garden to be placed in the middle of the site, bounded by Trent Road, Hornsby Road and Swingbridge Road.

The housing planned is homes made up of one- and two-bed flats and two-bed houses.

A public consultation was held earlier this year in which people put forward a number of concerns. People who took part in the consultation said they were concerned that an area which could potentially be turned into a green area was being used for more housing. They also expressed a concern that they would lose the existing play area for a while until the new development was built.

The landowner, South Kesteven District Council, responded by saying: “As SKDC owns the land near Sycamore Court (bordering Shaw Road, Trent Road and Swingbridge Road) and the land adjacent to Trent Road, Swingbridge Road and Hornsby Road, the council sees these sites as ideal locations to provide much needed social housing for the Earlesfield estate. As part of the overall Trent Road redevelopment, there is a provision for a play area and open space for the community to use.”

A spokesman for SKDC told the Journal: “After consultation it was determined the first phase of this development would be these 18 homes.

“With regards to the community and youth centres we are looking at an opportunity to provide a better offering to the community on this.”
