Planning decisions are made in accordance with the development plan for the area – for Scampton this mainly consists of the ‘Central Lincolnshire Local Plan’ which was adopted in 2017.
The local plan set a growth 'allowance' for each village in the area – for Scampton this meant that the village could grow by 10%, or 8 new homes. However, this figure is not a limit on the number of new homes that are allowed, instead policy LP4 of the local plan requires developers to provide "clear evidence of community support" in villages where the ‘allowance’ has already been reached.
In Scampton this is the case, in fact the growth figure had been exceeded before the plan was even adopted. Therefore, to meet the requirements of the local plan, community support must be provided. To do this, all of the residents in Scampton village are being invited to provide their view on this development. It is important that you have your say and it is hoped that the development is seen as an opportunity to improve this site at the heart of your village and make it safer and more attractive for existing residents and future generations alike. The information below is to help you make an informed decision about the plans.
