Plans approved to turn golf course into holiday resort

Boston to get new 300 lodge caravan resort

By Local Democracy Reporter

A golf course in Boston is on the verge of becoming a holiday resort, after planning permission was granted.

The new resort will see the golf course replaced with 300 lodge style caravans with associated facilities, as well as a hub building.

Plans were determined for works at Boston West Golf Club at Hubberts Bridge by Boston Borough Council’s planning committee in July.

The hub building will contain a reception, activity centre, spa, retail unit, food and drink facilities.

Parts of the existing golf course and the driving range would be kept as part of the resort.

Councillor Tom Ashton, deputy leader and portfolio holder for planning at the council, said: “It’s an application that has been well presented and there are a lot of benefits for the borough.

“This is a great investment for the borough. Once the scheme is complete it is estimated to generate an expenditure of £4.4 million per annum and £2.3 million per annum in gross value added for the economy.”

“We would also like to thank the planning committee for their commitment to Boston and helping bring wonderful and exciting developments.”
