Developers want to turn the site of a 40-year-old cafe on the A15 south of Lincoln into business units and several homes.
Stirlin Developments has acquired the one acre plot of land at Nocton Heath on Sleaford Road.
The cafe traded under various names including The Boundary Café, The Kitchen or Topo’s over the last 40 years, but in late 2017 the owners closed it for good.
Stirlin plans to have new business units constructed and ready to occupy by mid-2019.
At present the company is preparing a planning application to redevelop the land as high-quality workspace units and a small number of residential properties.
Paul Wheatley, the recently appointed Senior Projects Manager at Stirlin, said: “Our research has revealed just how many small businesses operate in this area.
“The surrounding villages such as Coleby, Branston, Navenby and Boothby Graffoe amongst others, are hotbeds of enterprise and we believe that there is a desperate need for well located business premises in which these companies can thrive and grow.
“This site will be ideal as a base for small businesses giving them a shop window to the 9,000 plus people who travel past the site each day.”
