A proposition was made to defer the application to ask the applicant to reconsider putting bungalows along the boundary with properties on Gloucester Road and Wells Close, and to seek reassurance from Lincolnshire County Council’s highways team that measures were being considered to improve traffic arrangements on the A52. Members were advised that officers considered the separation distances between the proposed development and the existing properties were sufficient to make it unreasonable to require the applicant to change the proposed buildings. Members were also advised that matters of access were determined when the outline application was considered. On being put to the vote, the proposition was lost.


Members of the committee expressed some concern about the single access point and the impact of this and other proposed developments on the volume of traffic on the A52. Reassurance was given that infrastructure had been considered as part of the preparation of the Local Plan and Members hoped that, should the development be approved, it would act as a catalyst for Lincolnshire County Council to commence improvements. The Chairman, as a member of Lincolnshire County Council, said that he would take the points raised, including suggestions about the installation of traffic lights, to Lincolnshire County Council Highways.


It was then proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be approved for the summary of reasons set out in the case officer’s report and subject also to the following conditions:
