Plans for holiday homes by the A16 at Algarkirk given green light – at the second attempt





Plans for holiday caravans on a site by the A16 have been given the green light – at the second attempt.

Despite parish council objections, applicant Tim Woodcock has been given permission to operate from his Barn Dried Logs site on Green Lane, Algarkirk.

Boston Borough Council gave planning permission for three caravans to be situated within the eastern copse of the wood fuel business’ site, which is currently used for the storage of logs.

“The static caravans, shown as being 40x14ft in size, will have the appearance of timber buildings,” the supporting statement provided by agent Andrew Clover Planning and Design said.

“The caravans will be spaced at least 10-12m apart and will be placed on stone or gravel bases.”

Algarkirk Parish Council had objected to the plans on a number of grounds.

They argued the site is not associated with any tourist facilities and is not on any clear tourist routes. a lack of local services meant visitors would have to travel in private cars to access shops and pubs and that visitors staying in the proposed caravans will be exposed to unacceptable levels of noise and pollution from the neighbouring A16.

A previous application to site four holiday caravans had been turned down in June.

However, following the the second application the officer’s report said ‘an acceptable case has been made that the proposal constitutes the diversification of a land-based rural business’.
