A multi-millionaire Zimbabwean businessman and preacher has chosen Gainsborough for one of his latest developments.
Uerbert Angel, who owns the Angel Organisation, has applied to West Lindsey District Council to build a mixed use building including office, studio space and storage on land off Marshalls Way.
Documents submitted to the authority on Mr Angel’s behalf by UKSD, said the proposed development would “complement the up and coming… estate”.
“The proposed development lies within an established commercial area of Gainsborough,” said the documents.
“[It] represents an opportunity to boost employment in the area and boost economic development within a sustainable location.”
The build will include 46 parking spaces as well as a helipad according to the documents.
It will also include zero carbon technologies, while the landscaping is described as creating “an aesthetically pleasant environment”.
The Angel Organisation is an umbrella company covering a number of different others including construction, resorts and hotels.
Zimbabwean-born Mr Angel’s website describes how his companies, include television channels and educational facilities.
In 2017, Mr Angel bought a mansion in Lincoln worth around £2million at the time, with news reports stating he planned to renovate to a value worth around £4million.
