Modern Methods of Construction on the affordable dwellings, along with walking and cycling linkages to the town
This second phase of the Gainsborough Growth Project consists of two elements:
Bowling Green Road
The Project will fund the initial land remediation and preparation costs to create a serviced development platform for the delivery of a mixed tenure housing scheme at Bowling Green Road.
This is a strategic brownfield site allocated for housing development within the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan and promoted as part of Gainsborough’s Housing Zone Strategy and now as part of its wider Growth Programme. The total development site extends to 8.3 acres; of which West Lindsey District Council owns 6.9 acres
The scheme will be delivered in 2 phases. Phase 1 covering the remediation and servicing of the site to enable development will be part funded by Greater Lincolnshire LEP. Phase 2 (not funded by SLGF) will cover the delivery of 130 units.
Once serviced, the site will be developed in phases, delivering a total of 130 dwellings with indicative mix as follows:
- 12 supported housing units
- 36 affordable homes (affordable rent and home ownership)
- 56 over 55 apartments and older persons accommodation
- 26 min open market homes
The scheme will incorporate Modern Methods of Construction on the affordable dwellings, along with walking and cycling linkages to the town. Green technologies will also be incorporated in the affordable housing construction.
This project will provide a traffic signal controlled junction at the B1433/A631 Corringham Road/ Thorndike Way junction which is one of the key routes into Gainsborough. It will improve safety and accommodate the future growth of Gainsborough. The Northern SUE development is expected to contribute to the construction of the improved junction and no dwellings can be occupied until all construction works have been completed and the junction open for use. The junction will be delivered by the County Council on land under the control of the Highways Authority.
