Housing plans for former A46 pub refused once again

Re-submitted plans for a former Nettleham pub site to be transformed into housing have once again been refused.

Proposals, submitted by Rob Wilkinson to West Lindsey District Council, would have seem the former Brown Cow Inn site transformed into a housing development, to include:

  • 3 one-bedroom dwellings within the former pub building
  • 4 three-bedroom dwellings to the rear of the existing building
  • External works including a 12 space car park, boundary walls and fencing, are also included in the housing plans.

New plans were submitted.

 

West Lindsey District Council rejected the re-submitted plans over concerns that the proposal would lead to the ‘erosion the of green wedge between Lincoln and Nettleham’, and also stated that the site would be an overdevelopment.

As previously reported, 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 become a housing development were submitted earlier this year, and were then refused in May 2019.

Previous plans would have seen 3 one-bedroom dwellings within the former pub building and 5 three-bedroom dwellings to the rear of the existing building built.
