A revised plan is to be put to the district council by Allison Homes for 480 houses at Manthorpe.

A spokesman for Allison Homes, part of The Larkfleet Group of Companies, said: “We have redrawn our plans for development at Grantham North to take account of the Grantham Environmental Capacity Study and comments from consultees – including the public and local councillors – that have been made to us about the proposed development.

“As a result, we are producing new plans which reduce the total number of homes to around 480. We are finalising the plans now and aim to submit those revised details within the next few weeks.

“The revised plan will then be the subject of further public consultation.

“We are determined to produce the best possible scheme to meet the pressing need for more homes in Grantham.”

In November 2015, Allison Homes submitted a plan for 550 homes on the site together with a school, convenience store and shop units

Steve Ingram , Strategic Director for Development and Growth said: “I understand that the applicants are intending to submit a revised scheme, reducing down the potential scale of development, in an attempt to address concerns raised by the initial public consultation.”

“If such an amended scheme is submitted I understand that it will again also be widely consulted upon.”

District Councillor Ray Wootten said: “The initial application has seen residents objecting in their hundreds, however should a revised scheme be submitted I will consult with the residents and parish councils and represent their views accordingly.”
