Former Fenland Foods factory in Grantham to be demolished
A factory in Grantham which has stood empty for 12 years is set to be demolished to make way for new development.
Fenland Foods was mothballed by its owner, Northern Foods, in 2018 after it lost a contract with M&S to provide ready meals. It led to more than 700 people being made redundant.
In a planning application submitted to South Kesteven District Council, applicant Brackley Property Developments wants permission to raze the site, in Turnpike Close, to the ground.
It plans to demolish the metal-clad, steel-framed food factory buildings and associated hard standings entirely to "facilitate new development" of industrial and commercial units.
If approved, it plans to start the demolition process on August 10.
More as we have it.
