A vacant food factory site in Gosberton is to get a new lease of life and create jobs producing cardboard packaging for businesses in the area.

Plasto Sac UK Ltd were given the thumbs-up for change of use of the former Gosberton Food Park in Quadring Road by South Holland District Council’s planning committee last week.

Currently it employs nine full-time and three part-time staff and five additional people are expected to be appointed.

Applicant Edward Whitehead told councillors the company needed to relocate from its present base at Bicker in order to continue growth.

Resident Timothy Burleton expressed concerns about noise, but Mr Whitehead said the machinery was quiet and there would be no shift work.
