Saxilby with Ingleby, Lincolnshire – influencing future development & protecting rural character

Saxilby is one of Lincoln’s radial villages and as such is under severe pressure for extensive residential development. The village has experienced a number of large and rather unimaginative developments in the past. The community wished to take advantage of the neighbourhood planning process to feed into the Central Lincolnshire Plan and influence the type of development to be allowed in the future.

The group are still progressing with the neighbourhood plan and have completed the ‘community consultation and building evidence’ base. The greatest gain to date is the high level of awareness raising and community engagement with the whole issue of appropriate development in the village.
