175 homes to be built in village

Housebuilder Allison Homes has received planning permission from South Kesteven District Council to build 175 new homes in the village of Barrowby, two miles west of Grantham.

Based on Low Road, the 7.9-hectare site will consist of 122 three-, four- and five-bedroom open market homes and 53 affordable homes that will be available through affordable rent, shared ownership and the First Homes scheme. The site will also include public open spaces, including a playground and walking routes.

Allison Homes is providing land for a community facility for Barrowby and over £669,000 in S106 contributions, which will go towards improving existing sports facilities, expanding healthcare capacity and delivering a dedicated footway and cycleway linking the site to Grantham.

Georgina McCrae, planning director at Allison Homes East, said: “We are extremely proud to have received unanimous support to build 175 new homes in Barrowby. This development will bring a host of benefits to the local community, both economically and environmentally, and provide much needed, high-quality housing. A big thank you to Barrowby Parish Council and Officers at South Kesteven District Council for working collaboratively with us to design this exciting new development.”
