TOWN & COUNTRY PLANNING
Outline planning permission for residential development (Ref: 130434) was granted in October 2013 but has since lapsed. However, we understand there is strong support in favour of future residential development as the land is identified in the Local Plan as a residential allocation and Gainsborough has growth point status. Interested parties are advised to discuss any planning queries they may have with West Lindsey District Council Planning Department, Tel: 01427 676676.
The site is located to the south of Gainsborough just off Middlefield Lane, to the north of Thorndyke Way offering easy access to the town centre. The surrounding area is predominantly residential in character, including the new sought after Miller Homes development, Brooklands.
Gainsborough is an expanding market town with a population over 18,500 people, located at the intersection of the A631, the A159 and the A156 which makes for easy reach of Sheffield, Doncaster, Lincoln, Scunthorpe and Grimsby. There are frequent trains from Lea Road Station to Lincoln, Sheffield and Doncaster, and a good local bus service supporting the town and further afield. Robin Hood airport is 12 miles away.
The neighbourhood is well supported by local amenities including Morrison’s supermarket less than 1 mile from the site, several nursery and primary schools within walking distance, and the Queen Elizabeth High School which has an excellent academic record. The town also benefits from a number of medical practices and dental surgeries located throughout. The West Lindsey Leisure Centre is approximately a 15 minute walk from the site and the award winning Ping Golf Course is located on the edge of town.
Gainsborough is generally well supported by a strong retail centre with the popular and award winning new Marshalls Yard offering an array of High Street names such as Marks & Spencer, New Look, Superdrug, Next, Wilkos and The Body Shop.
