A £2.14 million project to preserve and transform a Bourne landmark has been given a seal of approval from civic leaders.
Business and retail units, as well as 14 new apartments, have been built at Wherry’s Mill in a partnership between South Kesteven District Council and South Hykeham-based developers Trent Build Limited.
Recently, district council leader Linda Neal, Cllr Frances Cartwright and representatives of Hodgson Elkington chartered surveyors of Lincoln were given a tour of the development.
Coun Cartwright said: “This is an excellent example of affordable housing in a great town centre location.
“Having looked at the quality of the interiors, I am not surprised that the value of these properties continues to rise and I am sure this can be a template for other projects in the district.
“We always knew this development would be popular and it has proved to be so.”
Neil Cucksey, the council’s property development manager, said: “There is a genuine need for good quality town centre apartments and retail units in Bourne and this project shows that our investment here is worthwhile.”
