Car park to be converted into luxury town houses

The parking spaces could be moved to a nearby church

A car park in Grantham will be transformed into luxury town houses, under new plans revealed today.

South Kesteven District Council has released artist impressions of the multi-million pound development on Watergate.

Under the new plans, which are at an early stage, 15 new homes will be built on the Watergate car park.

The council are in talks with St Wulfram’s Church, close to the site, to take on the car parking spaces.

The townhouses could look something like this.

Councillor Helan Goral said: “This project gives us the opportunity to provide a high-quality housing development without losing valuable parking spaces.

“We are determined to ensure that Grantham moves forward offering a mix of modern living with access to all amenities.”

The proposal will go through a consultation stage with residents, businesses and users of the car park.

It comes just a week after the council announced plans for a new multi-million pound leisure centre.
