Gosberton village is within 6 miles of the nearby market town of Spalding, which has a fuller range of shops and amenities, and the village is 10 miles south of the market town of Boston.

ACCOMMODATION
PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS
Full planning consent has been granted by South Holland District Council - Reference number is H08-0036-16 for the demolition and clearance of the whole site and the plans included in the Full Planning Consent show an indicative site layout of 5 residential units. An Affordable Housing condition has been included in the Outline Planning Consent, however, the emerging Local Plan Affordable Housing Policy (which may be adopted early in 2017) has provided for developments of 9 units or less, not to be required to include provision for Affordable Housing within a scheme.

Additionally there is currently a Court of Appeal case which is considering the reintroduction of National Policy requiring Planning Authorities to give consent for residential schemes of up to 10 units, without Affordable Housing provision. Interested parties should make their own enquiries as to the Affordable Housing contribution / condition presently attached to the planning consent.

A copy of the formal planning consent is available from the Council´s website : www.sholland.gov.uk or from the Agent´s Spalding Office. Included in these Particulars is a copy of the plan determined on the planning application which shows the indicative layout for the Outline application.
