Grimsby practice ID Architecture has won permission for this three-home scheme on the outskirts of Waltham, Lincolnshire, even though the plans had been recommended for refusal
North East Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee unanimously approved the application, against the advice of the authority’s own planning officers, who had warned the project fell outside the local plan’s development boundary.
The £1.2 million scheme in Cheapside features a trio of 250m² homes ‘arranged around a central shared courtyard with deep sheltered porches and crisp zinc roofs’.
According to the practice, the ‘traditional pitched roof forms are complemented by a contemporary palette of white render and limestone’.
The back of each house will have ‘large expanses of glazing’ and recessed first-floor balconies with views out over the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Construction is set to start next May (2017) and complete 12 months later.
