Former hotel near Lincoln to be reopened as residential special school

Plans have been submitted for an extension to a former hotel, which is under development to become a residential special school near Lincoln.

Proposals, submitted by the Longboat Special Education Limited, would see the former Norton Lodge Hotel & Conference Centre extended to include a playground and additional bedrooms.

Developers were previously given planning permission for the hotel to be transformed into a special school for children with disabilities.

The school will be named Witham Prospect School and will include classrooms, special rooms and a play area.

Plans submitted for the site on Old Harbour Farm, Newark Road, Norton Disney, would see extensions to the building, the construction of a play area, a new driveway and provision of four visitor car parking spaces.

This will be on 4.70 hectares of land.

According to plans, the site would also include:

  • Kitchen
  • Sensory room
  • Soft play area
  • Family/therapy room
  • Dining space
  • A number of classrooms

Councillors at North Kesteven District Council will discuss extension plans at a later date.
