LIVES are planing changes at Horncastle headquarters


LIVES are seeking permission to build a new training room at their headquarters in Horncastle.

The organisation has applied to East Lindsey District Council to make changes to existing units at Birch Close on the town’s Boston Road Industrial Estate.

The application is due to be discussed by members of Horncastle Town Council’s planning and development committee next Tuesday evening.

A final decision, though, will rest with planners at ELDC.

ELDC has received one objection to the plan from a neighbouring business which is particularly concerned about parking issues.

Other items on next Tuesday’s agenda including an amended plan for 52 new dwellings at ‘Greystones’ off Lincoln Road.

There were objections from town councillors when initial plans for the development were submitted last summer.

The applicant is Westleigh Developments who want to build 17 pairs of semi detached homes, each with associated car parking and access roads.

Existing residential and commercial buildings will be demolished.

As well as flooding and access issues, there have been concerns expressed that some of the new homes would directly overlook sporting facilities at the neighbouring Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School.

Planning committee members will also consider proposals by Bell and Shinn to erect a pair of semi detached houses and a dormer bungalow at Station Lane, Horncastle.

Mr and Mrs Gault have applied for the go ahead to extend and alter an existing dwelling at Elmhirst Road Horncastle.

Ms Read is seeking permission for a detached garage and carport with a first floor gym.

An existing shed and garage will be demolished.
