Planning Potential in Central Lincolnshire

Policy changes may see planning potential lost if action is not taken now

  • New Houses Mockup

The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan (CLLP) has been guiding decisions on planning applications in Lincoln, North Kesteven and West Lindsey since it was adopted in 2017. The plan is now being reviewed and changes will be made to bring it in line with the recently updated National Planning Policy Framework. The next stage of public consultation is due in the Spring and we will be keeping a close eye on its progress and notifying our clients accordingly.

As these policy changes could impact on the residential development potential for some small and medium sized villages, the Planning Team at JHWalter has completed research into the opportunities that exist here. This work brings together an assessment of a range of constraints (for example, flood risk, access and landscape impacts) with knowledge of the volume of new homes supported by the current Local Plan policy. Our findings indicate that there are many sites in these villages that could still benefit from planning permission for small residential schemes.   

A full list of the villages can be found here. If you have land or property in these locations and you think it might be suitable for development, we would encourage you to get in touch with us to discuss the opportunity before changes to planning policy take hold.
