Future proposed for former Lincoln A46 pub

An iconic A46 pub which closed after decades of trade could be turned into housing under new plans.

The former Brown Cow Inn at Nettleham shut last year as, like many traditional public houses, owners struggled to make the business sustainable.

It was put on the market at £345,000 and has been vacant ever since.

Back in 2015, plans were put forward to turn the site into 18 homes, but this didn’t materialise.

Councillors last year approved proposals to open a children’s nursery in the building.

Now, an application submitted by a Mr Rob Wilkinson, reveals new plans to transform the traditional public house into eight homes.

Outline documents show designs for three one-bedroom dwellings. Plus, five three-bedroom dwellings would be built following the demolition of rear extensions.

There would also be 15 parking spaces.

Proposals will be considered by West Lindsey District Council at a later date.
