Adcocks Drinks Company Ltd is seeking outline planning consent for 50 homes on land it owns in Crease Drove, Crowland.
Agents for the company say there are two buildings on the land, with one beyond economic repair due to vandalism and the second in poor condition.
That second building is divided into three units, one occupied by Adcocks with the other two formerly occupied by a charity and a storage company.
An illustrative layout showing 47 homes says there could be 12 two-bedroom properties, 26 three-bedroom properties, six four-bedroom properties and three four to five-bedroom properties, although the housing mix could change.
A design and access statement from the agents says the applicants “propose selling the site at an early opportunity should the council be minded to grant planning approval and a number of developers have already registered an interest in purchasing it”.
The statement also says: “This proposal will contribute towards meeting both local and national aspirations in relation to prioritising brown field land for new development particularly as in the case of South Holland this will not involve the loss of high grade agricultural land or development on land at flood risk which most new housing allocations will do.”
