Council starts search for demolition contract in Gainsborough town centre

West Lindsey District Council is searching for a contractor to demolish the former Lindsey Centre in Gainsborough.

The demolition work, expected to start later in the year, will make way for a four-screen cinema, restaurant and commercial units as part of the council’s ‘Thriving Gainsborough’ programme of work.

Leader of West Lindsey District Council, Councillor Owen Bierley said: The demolition of the former Lindsey Centre is a focal point for our plans to create a ‘Thriving Gainsborough 2024’.

The location has great connectivity across the town that will reinvigorate our historic Market Place. It is an exciting time for Gainsborough as there is currently a hub of regeneration activity taking place in the town centre. We do have a strong track record in delivering successful schemes and I look forward to welcoming a contractor through our procurement process to join us in our ambitious plans to bring real, sustainable change to the town.”

The project forms part of the Council’s ambitious plans to regenerate the wider town centre area, which is undergoing a significant investment thanks to Council’s £18m Levelling up Programme.

”Once the contractor has been appointed, we will work closely with them to minimise disruption to market traders and businesses around the market place.”
