London, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 October 2015
A government-appointed Independent Planning Inspector will examine the Lincolnshire Lakes project on 13, 14 and 20, October in Scunthorpe. The development is expected to create six new self-sufficient villages and add 6,000 new homes, as well as schools, businesses and leisure facilities. While discussions will take place between the inspector and the North Lincolnshire Council, the public is invited to observe the proceedings.
“These three days of inspection moves us even closer to our vision of creating a special, distinctive community that is a popular and sustainable place to live, to work and to relax,” stated Charles Flynn, President and CEO of Lucent Group, which is developing 3,000 new homes in the first two of the six villages. The Lucent Group is a land site assembly specialist incorporating expertise in strategic land, real estate acquisition, finance, planning, infrastructure delivery and project management.
“The scheme represents a major new investment which will significantly boost the local economy. Our plans involve the creation of a range of new jobs and the delivery of a comprehensive package of infrastructure developments that will provide direct benefit, not only to existing residents of Scunthorpe but to those attracted to the area because of this project,” stated Flynn.
Lucent’s project will create the two villages on land between the western edge of Scunthorpe and the River Trent. These villages will be marked by superior quality amenities. Five lakes will be developed, allowing the villages to be set within an attractive waterside milieu with opportunities for leisure, sport and recreation.
Working with highly experienced partners, the Lucent Group’s scheme will be instrumental in delivering the Lincolnshire Lakes concept as adopted in the North Lincolnshire Council’s Core Strategy and set out in the emerging Lincolnshire Lakes Area Action Plan (AAP). This plan was published for public consultation in late 2014 and was submitted to the Government for independent examination of March 2015.
Mrs Sarah Housden is the Government-appointed Independent Planning Inspector who will be conducting this examination. The examination takes place over three days and each session will cover specific but different issues. Only those whom the Inspector has invited can participate in the review process, however the public is welcome and encouraged to observe the proceedings.
“We’re extraordinarily far into this process,” stated Charles Forsyth, Communications Director for Lucent Group. “Many investors and developers have dreams of creating something this ambitious but lack the expertise to take their vision into the realm of reality. North Lincolnshire Council has worked tirelessly with us to help to bring our proposals to this important place. They are committed to ensuring not only that this project becomes real, but that it delivers what local people need and want.”
All three days of examination will be taking place in the executive lounge of Glanford Park on Jack Brownsword Way in Scunthorpe. Each session begins at 10am.
