A planning application for 23 houses in Bourne has been refused.

The plans for developing land off Falcon Way was ‘against the council’s housing policies’ in their Core Strategy, members of South Kesteven District Council’s development control committee said.

Its site allocation documents only allows development on “non-allocated sites which are brownfield and/or under 10 dwellings in capacity,” they said.

“Poor design and overdevelopment resulting in lack of open space, play provision and landscaping” were also sited as reasons for refusing Larkfleet Homes’ application.
