Client: Porch House Limited

LPA: East Lindsey District Council

In June 2020, Boyer’s Midlands office secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission with all matters reserved except access for the erection of up to 80 dwellings in Sibsey on behalf of Porch House Limited.

The southern part of the Application Site was allocated for 34 dwellings and the northern parcel lies within open countryside. However, Boyer demonstrated that the northern parcel is essential to facilitate a suitable access and that it would constitute windfall development in accordance with local planning policies.

The proposal was highly contentious due to the extension beyond the allocated site and therefore Boyer sought to actively engage with local residents and the Parish Council. Throughout the application process, Boyer worked closely with the Case Officer and Statutory Consultees to overcome objections and obtain an officer recommendation for approval.

The application was heard at East Lindsey District Council’s first virtual Planning Committee whereby the resolution to grant planning permission was secured.
