More news, no ads


Planners have refused a bid to demolish an historic railway building due to an issue with a site notice.

Aldrich Group had applied to South Holland District Council to knock down the Station House in Kings Street, Spalding.

An earlier application to demolish the building and turn it into flats had also been refused.

However, the latest application was turned down to an issue with the site notice.

The officer's report states: "B.2 (iv) of Class B requires the display of a site notice 'or near the land on which the building to be demolished is sited and must leave the notice in place for not less than 21 days in the period of 28 days beginning with the date on which the application was submitted to the local planning authority'.

"It is set out at B.3 the information which a site notice should contain. The site notice that has been displayed for this application does not contain the name of the applicant and therefore is contrary to the requirements of the legislation.

"It cannot therefore be permitted development."
