Outline planning permission has been given to demolish existing industrial buildings on West Road and use the site for 23 houses.

South Kesteven District Council’s development control committee gave unanimous approval on Tuesday for the former Grimers Transport depot to be demolished and redeveloped for residential purposes.

The application also includes the creation of a single access road from West Road into the site.

The current layout drawn up for the houses is indicative only, with exact details still to be approved via reserved matters.

There were no public speakers at the meeting and while questions were asked by councillors regarding the site’s current use for storage and demand for housing, overall redevelopment of the brownfield site was considered beneficial.
