137-holiday home plan for Louth could happen in 2013

Ambitious plans for a new holiday and leisure site on the outskirts of Louth, drawing 54,000 visitors annually, could come to fruition in early 2013.

Lincolnshire firm, Tanglewood Leisure, based near Boston, have earmarked 23 acres surrounding Brackenborough Lawn House off the A16 for a ‘small high-quality retreat for short or longer breaks in peaceful and attractive surroundings’, including 137 holiday lodges, for which they were given outline planning permission for last year.

But Stephen Palmer, spokesman for the applicant’s agent, Place Architecture of Lincoln, told the Leader that work was ongoing to fulfil the required highways conditions around what is known as Cordeaux Corner.

Mr Palmer said he expected a full planning application to be submitted in February or March, with building work getting underway later in the year should everything be approved.

The plans also include new access to the site off the A16, pedestrian walkways, a cycling path and parking facilities.

Initial projections suggested there could be as many as 54,000 visitors annually to the attraction which would generate some 33 jobs plus significant revenue to Louth area shops, pubs, restaurants and other businesses.
