Purpose of this Consultation
Emery Planning will shortly be submitting an application for the erection of 20 dwellings at land off Barlings Lane, Langworth, Lincolnshire.
This website provides details of the proposed development and seeks comments from the local community. This is an opportunity for you to provide us with your views and ideas to help us form the final scheme, before a planning application is submitted to the Council. We are also recording any expressions of interest from those who may be interested in living at the proposed development.We also welcome you to a public consultation event at Langworth Memorial Hall on 14 May, from 3.30pm until 7pm. The plans will be available to view, members of the development team will be present to answer questions, and response forms will be available. Alternatively, you can provide feedback via this website.
The Site and Planning Context
The site is located within the settlement of Langworth, which is approximately 6 miles to the north-east of Lincoln and within the administrative boundaries of West Lindsey District Council. The village falls within the parish boundaries of Barlings.
The site comprises two parcels of land either side of Barlings Lane, which is characterised by existing residential development laid out along the road frontage. The existing development fronting Barlings Lane comprises a range of house types, design and layout.
Located to the north east of the site is Barlings Country Holiday Park, a large holiday park with caravans and lodges.
The site connects the existing properties to the south of the main village core to the north along Barlings Lane. The proposal seeks to replicate the linear settlement pattern in order to maintain the pleasant rural character of the area.
The village of Langworth benefits from a number of services including commercial units, a car showroom, a memorial hall with playground and the Church of St Hughs. However, in recent years a number of services have ended including the closure of the public house and post office. New development could assist in reversing this trend and provide residents to support service provision.
The proposals would consist of the residential development of 20 dwellings, including the provision of 4 affordable homes and an area of public open space.
The application would propose a mix of dwellings located across both parcels of land, with the proposed area of public open space to be located to the west of Barlings Lane.
The application would be made in outline, with detailed design matters reserved for future approval. However, the parameters and principles would be established through this application. The development would comprise a mix of house types, all with generous front garden aspects with off street parking.
An area of public open space would act as a new village green and amenity area, and also a transitional entrance space to the public footpath which would be retained.
Benefits of the Development
The proposed development would result in a number of benefits for the local community. These would include:
- Provide much needed housing, delivering good quality family housing and creating mixed and sustainable communities;
- Delivering affordable housing where there is an identified need; and
- Provision of an area of public open space.
- The creation of jobs on-site and within the supply chain during the construction phase; and
- An increase in local spending from new residents in the local area, contributing to maintaining existing shops, services and facilities and the long-term vitality of Langworth.
- Sustainable development in an accessible village location;
- Additional landscaping will be provided with new tree planting, enhancing what is currently managed agricultural land; and
- The provision of public open space.
