Consultation has begun this week on the design codes which will be used on the Lincoln South East Quadrant which is scheduled to deliver 3,500 new homes in the Canwick and Bracebridge Heath area by 2036.
The principle of the development was established in the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan and as well as the homes the development will also see a District Centre, a Local Centre, seven hectares of new employment land and several new primary and secondary schools.
The design guide consultation will run until September 9 and will include online events on August 11 and September 1.
Development Manager Mark Williets said: “The Covid-19 Pandemic means that we have had to think differently about how we can consult on the design codes for the Lincoln South East Quadrant and that is why we are hosting online presentations when people can discuss the proposals directly with NKDC officers and their Masterplanners.
“The events will be held on August 11 and 1 September at 6pm on Zoom. To access the Zoom video people should visit www.lincolnseq-northkestevendc.co.uk (link and click on the link or comments can also be emailed to consultation@lincolnseq.NKDC.co.uk.”
A website has also been set up which gives information and access to a downloadable PDF. You can find it at www.lincolnseq-northkestevendc.co.uk (link expired)
Normally a public consultation on a development like this is required for four weeks and documents would be on display in public buildings.
The Covid pandemic means that many public buildings are closed or are subject to more restricted opening so the Council has:
- Extended the consultation period to six weeks rather than four.
- Properties in Bracebridge Heath and Canwick are due to receive a four page leaflet advising of the consultation and giving details of how to comment either electronically or by post.
- Hard copies of the consultation documents will be made available on reasonable request.
- Parish councils will be alerted to the relevant dates and the district council will try to accommodate their timescales given they are unlikely to meet in August.
