Plans to transform Wyndham Park and return it to its former glory as a focal point for Grantham have been given the approval of councillors.

The development control committee of South Kesteven District Council gave its full backing to the application for the refurbishment of the boating lake, the old changing rooms and ticket office. The plan includes the construction of a visitor centre which will provide a central information point and a place for training activities and events.

It will also have a workshop area, main visitor area, school room and toilets.

Steve Frisby, of applicant SKDC, told the committee that the proposal includes the removal of eight trees near the boating lake which will open up views of St Wulfram’s Church as was intended when the park first opened.

Committee members raised concern about the trees but officers said that they could include a requirement for a tree planting scheme.

Wyndham Park Forum hopes to receive more than £870,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to enable improvements to the park. The forum expects a decision from the HLF in a few months’ time.
