Plans for new stores, cafes and restaurants at Springfields Outlet

This story is over

Springfields Outlet in Spalding has announced proposals for a major new investment in the centre.

With significant interest from major brands, owners, the Triton Property Fund, are launching a public consultation on plans which could see around 15 new stores and cafes and restaurants being built.

Last week, the Joint Strategic Planning Committee agreed to adopt the new South East Lincolnshire Local Plan, prepared jointly by Boston Borough Council and South Holland District Council.

The Local Plan supports the provision of new retail space in Spalding at Springfields and the improvements to Springfields Outlet are proposed on Camel Gate, on the site of the NFU Mutual building and the car park next to Travelodge.

The proposed new development at Springfields Outlet includes 15 new stores for well-known brands; up to four new restaurants and cafes; 236 additional parking spaces, and the introduction of more electric vehicle chargers.

It is expected that around 350 new jobs would be created, adding to the 650 jobs already at Springfields.

As part of these proposals, Springfields will work with the local authority and other stakeholders to identify ways to further encourage people to visit Spalding town centre.

Before submitting a planning application for the proposals, Springfields Outlet is now looking to consult with the community.

As part of the public consultation, an exhibition of the proposals will be held in Unit 9, next to Chapelle Jewellery on North Avenue at Springfields on Friday, March 22, between 3pm and 6pm and on Saturday, March 23, between 10am and 4pm.

Information about the extension plans will also be available on a dedicated website.
