Gleeson Homes has been granted planning permission to build 62 homes on 5.6 acres of land located off Main Street in Mareham-le-Fen.
The development, which will be known as Birkwood will see the rural site be transformed into 2, 3 and 4 bedroom semi and detached homes. The name Birkwood was coined by a pupil at Mareham-le-Fen Church of England primary school who won a competition to name the development and which represents a deserted medieval village which is adjacent to Mareham-le-Fen.
There will be a range of house styles on the development, including two bungalows, all of which will benefit from open-plan kitchen-diners with French doors out to their own garden. There will also be four homes available to rent and 11 shared ownership homes.
Wayne Sutton, Operations Director at Gleeson said: “We are delighted to be bringing 62 new homes to Mareham-le-Fen. This will be our sixth development in East Lindsey, an area which we are seeing great success with our quality, affordable homes.
“We are pleased to be supporting the local area by improving public open space, roads, and donating to the crucial education and health care infrastructure of Mareham-le-Fen, as well as supporting the community by employing a workforce on site that will be made up of local labour and contractors.”
Construction at Birkwood is set to begin in late summer 2021, with the first new homes for sale released in November 2021 and two show homes expected to open in February 2022. The first new homeowners are expected to move into their homes in spring 2022.
