Lincoln car and motorhome business approved

An industrial estate plan for the display of motorhomes and car storage was approved by the City of Lincoln Council.

The proposal was submitted by G W Padley Holdings Limited for land on Ironstone Close in the city.

Under the plans, five blocks of 28 industrial units will be set up along with car parking and a pedestrian footpath between Bishops Road and Quary Close.

The purpose of the industrial blocks will be to display motorhomes, ancillary lodges and to store cars.

A security fence will also be built around the site along with vehicle gates.

“The development is be served by a good public transport system and the proximity of the development to the city centre would reduce reliance on vehicles and associated transport-related pollution and carbon emissions and encouraging efficient, effective movement by a alternative modes of transport to afford sustainable development.”
