Rectory Farm Planning Brief Consultation

Amendments to the Planning Brief and Masterplan Maps

Following the recent consultation exercise in October the Brief has been amended. We are seeking your comments on the revised documents and plans.

Rectory Farm is a key allocation in the South Kesteven Local Plan, forming an urban extension to Grantham to meet South Kesteven's housing requirements up to 2036. It forms Phase 2 of Grantham's North West Quadrant (NWQ) development, the adjoining Poplar Farm site to its east forming Phase 1 of the NWQ and is located between Barrowby Road and the railway line, to the east of the A1 as defined by the red line site area below.

This Planning Brief has been prepared to add detail to relevant policies in the emerging South Kesteven New Local Plan 2011-2036. This Planning Brief will not only provide guidance for landowners and developers, but also through its preparation as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) the local community and other stakeholders will have the opportunity to influence the future development of the area. A key element of the Planning Brief is the Masterplan Maps (Plans 1 to 12) which set out the location of the main land uses and supporting infrastructure within and adjacent to the site.

The Council are inviting comments on the Draft Supplementary Planning Brief during a three week period between 22 January and  12 February.
