Scartho residents raise money to help fight to halt 160-home development
CONCERNED residents are continuing to raise funds to help fight a proposed 160-home development.
The Scartho Village Action Group formed to oppose plans by Cyden Homes, which wants to build to the rear of houses in Shaw Drive and Kensington Place.
The group is urging residents to dig deep and raise £1,500 in order to fund a highways engineering company to conduct a traffic survey.
However, Cyden Homes has not submitted a planning application yet and says it is considering all feedback being received.
Dave Logan, technical director at Cyden Homes, said: "We are still looking through all the feedback from our public consultations.
"We know there are some residents who are not happy and we have taken on board their comments to make amendments to our plans where necessary.
"All this has to be finalised before we can submit our application to North East Lincolnshire Council."
Although if successful, builders could be on site at the end of the year and it would take about seven years to complete the project, at a rate of about 25 homes a year.
Backing the Scartho Village Action Group is Councillor David Hornby (Con, Scartho), he said: "The group has not met since Christmas but I understand it could be doing so soon.
"They will look to see where they are with funds and catch up regarding the said development."
