Controversial house plan in Goulceby is approved


A controversial plan for a detached house to be built on the outskirts of Goulceby has been approved.

When Mr P. Firth’s application to develop the site was considered in August, it was refused by East Lindsey Council - with planning committee members objecting to the bungalow-style of the property.

But a revised scheme, with a more traditional house design, found favour with the committee - despite an observation from planning chief Chris Panton that the location, on the corner of Goulceby Lane and Ford Way, encroached into the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Supporting the application, Coun Tom Ashton commented: “Goulceby are happy with it - and it’s their village.”
