SITE DESCRIPTION
The site is irregular in shape and currently comprises approximately 7.39 acres (2.99 hectares) of open meadowland.
The site abuts existing residential garden land to the north and south and has road frontage to Ermine Street along its western boundary. To the east, the site abuts existing paddock land.

LOCATION
The site is located on the north eastern side of the village of Ancaster which is situated in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire.
Ancaster benefits from a wide range of local amenities including a primary school, butchers, co-operative shop, railway station (on the Nottingham–Skegness line), a post office, and a petrol station. There is also a public house and a sports and social club associated with the playing field.
Ancaster is situated equidistant between Sleaford (approximately 6.5 miles away) and Grantham (approximately 8 miles away) which both offer a wider range of amenities including supermarkets, restaurants, bars and gyms.
The site offers good access to both the A1 (approximately 15 miles away) and A17 (approximately 3.5 miles away) with train services to Sleaford (approximately 9 minute travel time) and Lincoln (approximately 1 hour travel time). There are also frequent bus services to the surrounding villages.

PLANNING
The site is situated within the administrative area of South Kesteven District Council.
The South Kesteven District Council Local Plan 2011- 2036 (January 2020) states that in the ‘Larger Villages’, in addition to allocations, development proposals which promote the role and function of the Larger Villages, and will not compromise the settlement’s nature and character, will be supported. Ancaster is identified as being one of 15 Large Villages. The Site was considered as part of the South Kesteven Strategic Housing Land Availability
Assessment (SHLAA) [June 2017]. The report stated that the site (ANC14-106: East of Ermine Street, Ancaster) was then contrary to Policy SAP H1 (Other Housing Development). A reduced site area of 0.7 ha to exclude the adjacent land which is within flood zone would reduce any potential capacity to about 21 homes. Policy SAP H1 specified that other than those sites which are allocated, new greenfield sites on the edges of the towns and villages would not be considered acceptable for housing development. Whereas Policy SP2: Settlement Hierarchy in the new Adopted Local Plan is significantly more flexible.
As already mentioned above, it supports development proposals that promote the role and function of the Larger Villages and will not compromise the settlement’s nature and character.

TENURE
The site is held Freehold under Title Number LL254807.
