Plans for 17 new commercial units in Waddington approved

Plans for 17 new commercial units at Quarry Industrial Estate, Waddington have been approved by North Kesteven District Council.

Proposals, submitted by RCS Commercial Properties Ltd, will now see the erection of 17 commercial units on the site off Grantham Road.

As part of The Quarry Commercial Site, the new units will create 25 full-time and 12 part-time jobs in the area.

The site, which is situated in a disused quarry comprises of a lower northern area, containing Browns Autobreakers, a long establish company.

There are also existing commercial units within this northern area, however the submitted application relates to the southern area of The Quarry site.

A spokesperson said in the application: “The proposal site has had a clear commercial use from at least 1975 and possibly before and it has the benefit of an extant outline planning approval.

“The whole site is an active commercial entity and the proposal seeks to redesign the remaining areas to utilise the site area in a more efficient way.

“Although the areas have unimplemented approvals for four larger units, the proposal is to provide a larger number of smaller units which will provide much needed commercial buildings for the smaller businesses.”
