Plans to build a number 39 houses in Mount Pleasant, Louth, with an access road which would come into Spire View Road, has been deferred by councillors.

At the East Lindsey District Council Planning Committee meeting held on Thursday (December 18), 11 councillors voted in favour of the application being deferred with only one abstention.

A large number of residents that live in the affected roads attended the meeting and councillors paid attention to their concerns and thought it would be best to defer the decision so they could make a site visit.

The application includes eight pairs of semi-detached houses, two blocks of three houses, two blocks of four bungalows and two blocks of four flats, alongside 33 sheds.

Issues that came up among councillors included over development of the site, that the sheds were not necessary due to possible future flooding issues and the properties overshadowing others which are already there.

Speaking at the meeting, resident James Whitler said: “On behalf of a number of residents, we strongly object as it would cause a huge impact to Spire View Road with additional traffic making it very dangerous.

“It’s simply the wrong application for the wrong site.”

Coun George Horton also spoke and added: “Please defer this application as the site is over intensified and is up for approval with 18 conditions, yes maybe three or four would be ok, but not 18, it’s far too many.

These need to be whittled down.”

Councillors will arrange a site visit in the new year.
