Have your say on plan for 160 new homes in Scartho
RESIDENTS are being asked to have their say on plans to build 160 new homes in Scartho.
Cyden Homes, the developer behind the plans, is hosting a public consultation event in the hope of engaging with those living near the site, on land adjoining Shaw Drive and Glebe Road, before any formal planning application is made.
A spokesman for the firm said: "The purpose of the consultation is to present Cyden's proposals for the land, discuss any concerns with local residents and answer any questions you may have.
"Representatives of Cyden Homes and their team will be present on the day.

"Cyden Homes is an established local company, working on this development with Grimsby-based Shoreline Housing Partnership.
"We are looking forward to talking to local residents in the coming weeks about the potential benefits, such as supporting employment, creating new rights of way to the countryside and improving the facilities at Scartho Recreation Ground."
He added that the site had been identified by North East Lincolnshire Council as a sustainable location in an existing residential area, with homes aimed at first time buyers and older age groups as well as affordable housing.
However, some residents have already expressed concerns about the planned scheme – particularly over how the site will be accessed.
Rachel Ellis, of Westkirke Avenue, said: "I have contacted them to see where the proposed access points will be and they said they are not decided yet, as they wish to hear from residents, but they said three access points off Shaw Drive and Glebe Road are being considered, which will not be acceptable.
"Westkirke Avenue, leading to Shaw Dive, already has a traffic problem due to lack of parking. Cars are parked either side, leaving a single lane to enter or exit, which causes traffic issues on an already busy road."

The consultation event will be held on Thursday, July 12, from 1pm to 8pm in Scartho Methodist Church, Scartho Fork. All are welcome.
