More use to be made of the Louth Cattle Market site?

A CALL has come for ‘maximum use’ to be made of the five acre Louth Cattle Market site at times when it is not used for buying and selling livestock.

At a full meeting of East Lindsey District Council, Coun Jill Makinson-Sanders suggested that the authority could generate income by making it available for other activities such as car boot sales.

When portfolio holder for assets Coun John Upsall said he was ‘keen to bring forward proposals for the site as soon as possible’, Coun Makinson-Sanders queried if this meant it might be sold to a supermarket. Coun Upsall replied no decision would be made pending the outcome of a retail and economic impact assessment that has been commissioned.
