New plans for 121 homes in Humberston Avenue are submitted
PLANS for 121 homes to be built in Humberston Avenue have been formally submitted to planning bosses.
After three years of planning, Anthony and Collette Blakey, with Jonathan Hendry Architects, have lodged their application for a housing development on the former par 3 golf course to North East Lincolnshire Council.
Mr Hendry, pictured, said: "The proposed housing project has been designed in close consultation with NELC, parish councils and the local community.
"The proposals address a need for high quality, sustainable homes in the local community. All dwellings have been designed to achieve sustainable homes and conform to Lifetime Homes standards, making the whole development a fully accessible place for all abilities and ages."

The development includes a mix of houses with garages, a village green, allotment gardens, wild flower meadows, butterfly gardens and wildlife habitats.
It will be close to where Keystone Developments wants to build 400 houses on four fields opposite Humberston Academy, which was rejected by planning bosses late last year. An appeal has not yet been made.
Meanwhile, the Hewson family has requested permission for a screening opinion on land at the opposite end of the avenue to build 400 homes. The former golf course is included in NELC's Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), as part of their 510-new-homes-a-year target across Humberston, Waltham, New Waltham and Healing by 2014.
Councillor John Fenty (Humberston, Cons), is concerned applications will be approved to meet these targets – despite the demand not being there.
He said: "We are not against development, but naturally residents are concerned about the number coming in for Humberston.
"We must make sure it doesn't become a hot spot for developers to get permission and then leave them like a building site for years and years.
"To have three schemes of this nature when there are other development sites around that have yet to demonstrate a need or demand is concerning."
