An application for a single detached house to be built on land at Church Lane in Marshchapel came a cropper when it went before East Lindsey District Council.
At a Planning Committee meeting last Thursday, councillors endorsed the recommendation of officers that it should be refused.
The consensus was that the proposed design “lacked charm” and would cause visual harm to the character of the village, particuularly as there are three Listed buildings, including St Mary’s Church, within close proximity.
The unsuccessful applicant was Mr J. Plater.
Meanwhile, the Planning Committee also turned down a proposal for a bungalow with basement garage to be built on land adjacent to Bargate, off Thackers Lane in Tathwell.
As well as disliking the design of the proposed property, they doubted if the access was sufficient and felt the development would be visually harmful to the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The unsuccessful applicant was Mr M.McConnell.
