Former Lincoln pub set for frozen food store revamp

This story is over

Lincoln councillors will discuss plans for an extension to a former pub, ahead of the site being transformed into a second Heron Food store in the city.

Plans submitted by Michael Heuck on behalf of Heron Foods Ltd, would see a small glazed shop front extension added to the former Lincoln Imp pub off Riseholme Road.

It is also proposed that the site on Blankney Crescent will be stripped and new steel columns and beams would be added to the existing building.

The change of use is permitted development and does not require planning permission and the only matters which require consent are the physical alterations to the building.

The site has Blankey Crescent to the west, Scopwick Place to the north and Laughton Way to the east.

It is located within a residential area with Riseholme Road running in a north/south direction to the west.

It has been recommended that the application is granted. A decision will be made by February 8.
