Commercial plans for roundabout land

Have your say

SUTTERTON roundabout could be in line to become the latest development hub in the area, as two patches of land could be transformed into commercial ventures.

Two adjacent quadrants of the Sutterton roundabout at the A16/A17 may be in line to be turned into motels and roadside services, in a bid to make the most of passing trade at the junction.

One of the sections, at Marsh Lane, off the A17, has been sold with a view to development, and the second patch, between the A16 south and the A17 west, is for sale with Brown & Co, which is offering the land for development as roadside services.

Both sites, which have been on the market for some time, have previously been given planning permission by Boston Borough Council, but the consent has lapsed.

The land sold by Bruce Mather was given consent for a 14-bed motel with managers’ living quarters, but the permission expired in November 2006. Several highways conditions were attached to the permission.

A spokesman for the company said he was hopeful that another application would be accepted if it was made.

The other piece of land – off the A16 south – was given permission for roadside services, including a motel and restaurant, but that expired in August 2007.

Other businesses based at the roundabout include the Little Chef and a BP petrol station.
