Village hall plans

A NEW future beckons for the former Etherington Arms pub in Holton le Clay - as a village hall.

After months of talks, the parish council has secured planning permission from East Lindsey District Council to convert the property for wider community use.

The project involves extensive refurbishment including the installation of new windows, an external lift, plus a covered walkway access for the benefit of disabled visitors.

The application was determined under delegated powers by an ELDC case officer without the need for consideration by the planning committee.
