Housing plan put in place for Hoddlesden allotment site in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire is set for new homes as plans for an allotment site, with new homes in mind, have been revealed.

An application has been put forward by MJ Hart Homes to Blackburn with Darwen Council, which proposes 14 brand new homes that will be located on land off Albert Street in Hoddlesden.

The site was used as allotments in the past, however, this has since been cleared and now the assorted sheds and numerous other structures on the site have been taken down.

The proposed development in question is close to Hoddlesden conservation area, which was designated back in 1975.

As part of the application, a heritage statement was submitted as part of the application, and stated: “Due to the sloping nature of the development site and its location to the south east of the conservation area boundary, the only properties within the conservation area which have a direct view of the site are 4-26 West View, 1-4 The Bowling Green, 2-10 Sydney Street and 1-11 Hargreaves Street.

“The properties on West View and Hargreaves Street do not make a significant contribution to the character and appearance of the conservation area due to the large number of extensions with variable designs.

“Furthermore 1-4 The Bowling Green consists of a small, modern development.

“Currently the application site is overgrown and unsightly. The proposed development will therefore improve the view from those properties that overlook the site.”

If the property plans are approved, the development itself will have 13 four and five-bedroom houses, as well as one three-bedroom house, along with 42 parking spaces in total.
