Farming company G H Hoyles Ltd is seeking planning permission to build a reservoir for irrigating crops on land at Monmouth Lane, Lutton.

In an application to South Holland District Council, the company says: “Water is required to improve crop quality and a reservoir is the only method to gain sufficient water to use in the summer.”

The reservoir will cover 31,796 sq m if planning consent is granted.
