Plans for 42 homes off Stallingborough Road in Healing given green light
PLANS to build 42 new homes off Stallingborough Road in Healing have been given the green light.
North East Lincolnshire Council's planning committee yesterday approved the application by Land Developers (Lincs) Ltd at the second time of asking.
The proposal had come before the committee in April, but a decision was deferred to allow further negotiations between planning officers and the developers.
The revised application includes a reduction in the number of homes from 43 to 42, a green, a more uniform design of housing and a more meandering road layout to calm traffic.

The development, which will be built on the edge of Healing immediately behind existing houses along Stallingborough Road, will comprise a mixture of one and two-storey detached and semi-detached houses.
Planning officers recommended approval of the development, saying that although it constituted a departure from the council's local plan, it could be justified by the need to increase housing supply in the borough.
However, they also recommended a Section 106 Agreement which would ensure:
At least 20 per cent of the homes are allocated "affordable housing".
The developer makes a contribution to provide additional primary school facilities to meet the expected increase in demand.
The developer carries out an ongoing landscaping maintenance programme for at least ten years.
The development was approved by seven votes to three. No residents were at the planning meeting yesterday.
Councillor Philip Jackson (Conservative, Waltham), who voted in favour of the application, said: "It's good to see there have been fruitful negotiations between our officers and developers. Most of the concerns have been resolved. We have got some far more attractive and interesting housing designs now, the road has been redesigned to provide a more interesting layout and some traffic calming measures.
"It will provide a lot of local employment and add to the supply of housing that the local area is able to provide. On balance I think it is now an acceptable application."
Daniel Snowden, of architects Ross Davy Associates, said: "It is fantastic news for all involved. We have worked closely with the planning department and Healing Parish to achieve a development which will provide a variety of homes within landscaped surroundings."
