Saxilby residents concerned as 100 homes planned for village despite ‘lack of infrastructure’

Concerns are mounting among Saxilby residents in West Lindsey over a proposed plan to build 100 new homes in their village. The core of their worry is the village’s supposed lack of adequate infrastructure to support such a significant expansion.

Locals have criticised the proposed housing development off Sykes Lane, labelling it “disgraceful” and arguing that the village has already seen excessive housing expansion in recent years. The proposed development site is currently farmland and situated on the rural fringe of the village, neighbouring established residential areas.

According to the plans, 20 per cent of the new homes will be marked as affordable housing, with an additional 5 per cent allocated for custom and self-build plots. A man who wished to be named Mr Monroe argues that that the village has experienced an excessive number of housing developments in the past decade, and claims that residents in these new areas face numerous problems.

He recounted an experience from a friend residing in a housing development on Church Lane, who reportedly has to constantly wear earplugs due to the disruptive noise from construction vehicles. “Saxilby has had a lot of housing over the last few years and I think it’s about time they started doing it somewhere else,” said Mr Monroe.

Echoing his thoughts, Laura Cameron, 45, described the situation as a “worry for all of the community.”

“I don’t think we’re opposed to new housing, it’s just the lack of infrastructure,” she added, pointing out the existing strain on the local doctor’s surgery and schools.

Phil Shaw, 58, also weighed in, stating: “We don’t have any negative perspective on building houses, but for goodness sake, if you are going to build them, then make it a prerequisite that they can only be built in conjunction with additional infrastructure.”
