The North of England’s largest housing regeneration scheme has been given the go-ahead in a move which promises thousands of homes and jobs.
North Lincolnshire Council’s Planning Committee has agreed to phase two of the £1.3bn Lincolnshire Lakes development estimating it will deliver 7,300 homes and 5,000 jobs.
The councillor noted the regeneration scheme—the largest in North Lincolnshire’s history—will be the size of 50 football pitches.
Deputy Leader Cllr Rob Waltham said:
“Today’s decision will pave the way for the region’s largest housing regeneration scheme for years to come.
It’s a significant milestone; now the necessary approvals have been granted, we can get on with delivering this huge scheme that will totally transform the area.
It will be fantastic for the area, creating thousands of new homes and jobs and a place people can be really proud of.”
