10-home development in Messingham met by objection from residents and parish council

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 24 Aug 2017

Objections have been raised to a proposed housing development in North Lincolnshire.

Plans have been submitted to North Lincolnshire Council for 10 homes to be built on Wendover Road in Messingham.

The proposals would see the demolition of an existing bungalow to make way for the new development.

However, objections have been raised by local residents and Messingham Parish Council.

Residents have said the development is unsuitable for the narrow road it is proposed for.

‚ÄčIt added that it believed there was insufficient parking space at the site and that the development would raise concerns about access to Wendover Road.

North Lincolnshire Council’s planning officers say the main issue to determine is whether the development would be acceptable in terms of layout, character and density.
