Southern Quadrant development project

The Southern Quadrant Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was adopted by the Council on the 18 February 2013.

The Southern Quadrant Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) establishes a set of objectives, principles and guidelines to inform the preparation of detailed development proposals. It is expected to provide new homes, new schools and community facilities as well as employment opportunities.  A new road will also be constructed between Spittlegate Level and the A52.

The SPD will be a material consideration in the assessment of proposals related to this development.

The site will provide up to 4,000 new dwellings, new schools, medical facilities, a community centre, employment opportunities, a neighbourhood centre and a range of formal and informal public open spaces. Part of the site development is the section of the Grantham East-West Relief Road between the A52 and B1174 Spittlegate Level. This will be forward funded by Lincolnshire County Council. 

The section of the Grantham East-West Relief Road between the B1174 Spittlegate Level and the A1 will be constructed through development of the "King 31" employment site which already has planning permission. Details of the "King 31" development can be found here.

The River Witham corridor and woodland areas of the site are important 'green' areas and have been incorporated into the design of the development.

Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)

South Kesteven District Council as a responsible authority determined that the masterplan would be subject to a SEA as it was likely to have significant effects on the environment. The final report and post adoption statement are available below.
