A car showroom and service centre in Spalding could become the site for nearly 50 new homes under plans submitted by developers.

Leicestershire-based developers Kaplan Property Group has applied to build 48 two-storey homes in St John’s Road, Spalding, which is currently home to car dealership EMG Motor Group.

Due to an imminent relocation of the business premises to a new site within the local area, the current site (in St John’s Road) is available for the redevelopment to residential use

The Spalding Guardian reported in September on plans by EMG to move out of Spalding into a purpose-built showroom on land near Elsoms Way, Pinchbeck, with a service centre to be opened on land near Wardentree Lane, Pinchbeck.

A statement in behalf of Kaplan Property Group said: “Due to an imminent relocation of the business premises to a new site within the local area, the current site (in St John’s Road) is available for the redevelopment to residential use.

“The surrounding area’s residential context, and strong links to the town centre, provides a suitable location for residential development.”

The statement added that provisional planning approval for 53 homes on the site had been given by South Holland District Council in 2008, only for the consent to expire.
