A former pub on Grantham’s Earlesfield estate will be developed for the benefit of the community, according to the district council.
Community leaders, groups and organisations got around the table to put together a “vision statement” for the former Jacko’s pub in Trent Road, bought by South Kesteven District Council last year.
SKDC’s property development manager Neil Cucksey said: “As a council we invested in this land which will now be developed to enhance the local community and to do this we needed to get residents and local community groups involved.
“We organised a workshop through OPUN, who specialise in design support services, which not only included local people but representatives from three churches, the foodbank, YMCA, the police, district and county councils, to mention a few, to get everyone’s views.”
The next stage is to go through all the feedback and produce a site development brief to progress the project which will also look at funding channels.
