What is the 'Call for Sites' in East Lindsey? Autumn/Winter 2023 Update:
Back in 2021 East Lindsey District Council announced a partial review of their existing Local Plan. This is ongoing and started with an 8-week consultation that ran from February to April 2021. There has been no major progress since that time.
As part of the review process the Council needs to establish what land is available for development within the District and therefore asked for sites to be submitted by landowners through that first ‘Call for Sites’ process. Whilst the first stage of consultation has now closed, further opportunities are expected in the very near future, so if you own land get in touch for professional representation without delay.
Do you own land in East Lindsey? If so, here's what you need to do...If you own land in East Lindsey and would like it to be considered for development in future then now is the time to act. It is important to be ready to submit sites in advance because the consultation periods are short, have a strict cut-off date and are very often announced with little to no warning! To put land forward, the Council require a detailed form to be completed which must be submitted together with a location plan and a range of additional technical information relating to the site to demonstrate that it is suitable for residential or commercial development. Starting this work early will put you at an advantage when the next Call for Sites gets underway by making sure you dont risk missing the deadline.
Our searches include looking at the range of possible planning constraints and the site's planning history, the likely site capacity and/or future uses, all of which are then combined in a detailed statement to show why your site should be selected and how development of your land relates to existing local and national planning policies.
If this sounds like a lot, or you don't know where to begin, don't worry - we have an excellent track record of obtaining allocations for our clients through local plan reviews. Fytche-Taylor Planning can help at every step of the way and are already representing a number of local landowners and developers across the East Lindsey area to their promote sites through this local plan review. If there is scope to make a planning application before the plan is reviewed, we can handle that too.
If you would like us to represent you too, we make the process as simple as possible and will deal with all communication with the Council. In most cases all we need to get things started is the location of the site and we can handle everything else from there. Contact us today for a quotation.
