The former New Bridge Inn as seen on Google Street View

Plans submitted for eight new homes on former pub site

Proposals have been submitted to build eight homes on the site of a former pub in West Pinchbeck.

The former New Bridge Inn has been demolished and plans to redevelop the land have been sent to South Holland District Council.

If approved, two blocks of three terraced homes and two detached houses will be built on the junction of Slipe Drove and the A151.

“The character of the immediate local area is predominantly residential with some commercial uses on the north west of the site between the River Glen and the A151. Dozens Bank and Edinburgh Walk are residential areas with a mixture of single and two storey properties,” says a document submitted with the application.

The proposal has been outlined by Paul Lunn Architectural Services.

“The dwellings have been designed in such a way that the potential for overlooking and overshadowing is kept to a minimum in the interests of neighbour and occupant amenity,” says the application.

“There is good existing access to the site via Slipe Drove directly off the A151 with excellent visibility in both directions at the junction. The existing site entrance for the former New Bridge Inn has an extensive length of dropped kerb which is to be utilised within this scheme,” says the document.

“The site is well serviced by public footpaths, one of which runs along the majority of the south eastern boundary of the site,” it adds.

The application has been made on behalf of G & L Developments and will be discussed at a later date.
