As reported in last week’s paper, Gleeson Homes was given permission to build 237 new homes on land off Brackenborough Road, and the 25 acre development will be known as Bracken Park.

This week, Wayne Sutton, operations director at Gleeson, said: “We are delighted to have received planning permission for these much-needed homes.

“This will be our second site in Louth and our fifth in East Lindsey. We are really looking forward to bringing this site to fruition, enhancing our reputation in the area as a five star builder.

“With our affordable homes, we are determined to ensure that the housing market better serves young first-time buyers and families on low to average incomes. We anticipate that many people from the local area will be interested in Bracken Park and expect that the majority of personnel on site will be made up of local 
labour and contractors.”

Gleeson Homes confirmed that the estate will feature two, three and four bedroom semi and detached homes, and the ‘Help To Buy’ and ‘Home Reach’ schemes will be available.

Gleeson will contribute £605 per plot to the NHS which equates to just under £150,000, and will donate £844,070 towards education in Louth and the surrounding areas. The company has also said it is donating £150,000 to fund a new local bus service, and a bus stop will be incorporated into the new development, and they will provide £5,000 towards travel planning and £5,000 towards Traffic Regulation Orders to make the area safer.
