Councillors in Woodhall Spa hope to debate revised plans for nine new homes on land owned by a famous hotel at their next meeting.

East Lindsey District Council’s planning committee rejected an initial application by owners of the Petwood Hotel back in March.

Woodhall Spa Parish Council had objected to the scheme which involved 11 homes.

Now, the hotel has submitted a new application - this time for nine homes.

Eight would be situated in mature woodland with a ninth located nearby.

As revealed in the News earlier this year, owners of the hotel want to utilise money generated by the scheme to help towards a £1m-plus restoration of Petwood’s famous gardens.

The gardens were laid out by the renowned Edwardian designer Edward Plato.

There are only seven Plato gardens in the UK and they attract thousands of visitors every year.

At their height, the gardens at the Petwood were visited by members of the Royal Family.

The hotel’s owners have already secured permission for the garden restoration which will involve work on the existing car park and entrance.

Designers of the homes stress they are in keeping with Woodhall Spa. Parish councillors next meet in December. They raised a number of concerns, including the loss of woodland.
