New lease of life for pub

Have your say

THE boarded-up and fire damaged New Bridge Inn at Dozens Bank, West Pinchbeck, may get a new lease of life as affordable homes.

Ms I Shard is seeking planning consent to turn the pub into five flats.

Plans have gone to South Holland District Council which say the development could be managed by a social housing landlord if the go-ahead is given.

The applicant aims to replace flat roofs with pitched ones and add windows and doors but otherwise keep the external appearance of the pub largely the same as now.

The plans show 12 parking spaces rather than the current 20.
