Plans to build new homes get go-ahead

A series of housing developments have been given the go-ahead by district councillors.

South Kesteven District Council’s development control committee met on Tuesday and approved five developments in Bourne, Market Deeping, Deeping St James, Morton and Castle Bytham.

An outline proposal for 15 affordable developments in The Old Quarry in Castle Bytham was approved while the other applications were deferred until planning officers and the developers thrash out the details of their section 106 agreements, which are legal agreements in which the developer gives money towards improvements to facilities like schools and roads.
