Housing plans for former Brown Cow pub site refused

This story is over

Plans for a former Nettleham pub site to be transformed into housing have been refused by West Lindsey District Council.

Proposals, submitted by Rob Wilkinson would have seen the former Brown Cow Inn site transformed into a housing development, to include:

  • 3 one-bedroom dwellings within the former pub building
  • 5 three-bedroom dwellings to the rear of the existing building

The Brown Cow Inn  on Lincoln Road closed in March 2018 due to the owners being unable to keep the business sustainable, and has been vacant since.

Plans for the site to become a children’s day nursery were previously approved by West Lindsey District Council in September 2018.

However, plans for the site to becoming a housing development were submitted earlier this year.

External works including a 13 space car park, 2 additional parking spaces, boundary walls and fencing, were also included in the housing plans.
