Hemswell Cliff is a village that has been developed out of the quarters of former RAF Hemswell. It is in attractive countryside
about 16 miles north of the cathedral city of Lincoln and mid-way between the market towns of Market Rasen and Gainsborough. The A15 gives access to the motorway network at Brigg onto the M180 with routes to the A1 via Lincoln or

The current village of Hemswell Cliff has a population of about 700 and includes a substantial amount of employment space such as the well-reputed Antiques centres in the former H-blocks as well as offices, garden centre, cafes and storage uses in the former aircraft hangers. There is a primary school serving the village which is rated as Good by Ofsted.

Just to the west of the site is the former officer's mess now used as a popular conference and wedding venue with hotel rooms.


The property is an arable field with frontage along the A631 which is gently undulating in character. Current access is
available from Dog Kennel Lane to the east but the development is proposed to take place off a new access from the A631.
In all, the property has a site area of 7.6 hectares (18.8 acres).


Outline planning permission has been granted for a residential development of the site for up to 180 dwellings. A suggested
layout of the site submitted with the outline planning permission is available although the outline planning permission does not restrict the developer to that layout or mix of dwellings. Nevertheless, the proposed development will include a good mix of housing off newly constructed estate roads with public open space and landscaping. Access will be via a new junction on the
south side of the A631.

Further information about the planning permission can be found on the website of West Lindsey District Council. It was granted
on 6th September 2017 under planning reference 134720. Further details are also available from the agent. The planning permission and Section 106 agreement provides for 25% (45) Affordable Homes. The levels of contributions for health and education are set out in the section 106 agreement according to the size and nature of the houses built. The developer is required to provide a new pedestrian crossing on the A631.
