Homes plan resubmitted for A46 pub

The pub closed last year

Plans have been resubmitted to turn an iconic A46 pub into homes.

Proposals by Mr Rob Wilkinson would see the former Brown Cow Inn, Lincoln Road, turned into three one-bedroom homes.

A further four three-bedroom houses would be built at the back of the building, as well as 12 car parking spaces.

West Lindsey District Council will make a decision on the proposal at a later date.

The former pub shut in 2018 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.

Another proposal for three one-bedroom dwellings, plus five three-bedroom homes was submitted back in April.

The plan also included 15 car parking spaces at the site.

But, the district council rejected the proposal in May.

The authority said the plan was an “overdevelopment” of the site and there was “insufficient parking provision”.
