Former retail and restaurant site in Spalding to be transformed into housing

Kaplan Property Group has secured detailed planning permission to transform a former garden centre, retail and restaurant site on the edge of Spalding into 72 residential units of mixed tenure.

Spalding Lifestyle Centre has until recently traded as a garden centre and restaurant, located directly adjacent Johnson Community Hospital, Spalding.

The approved plans for the 4.2 acre site secure a comprehensive redevelopment and will provide homes of mixed tenure delivering 1, 2 & 3 bedroom properties. Construction work will commence March 2020 with first phase occupations due autumn 2021.

Kaplan Property Group is a residential led property company based in Leicestershire, with an extensive residential led programme across the Midlands region. The latest scheme in Spalding has been designed through close consultation with South Holland District Council (SHDC) and represents a continued commitment to the district of South Holland.

Michael Gisborne, Property Director at Kaplan Property Group, said: “This is a carefully considered scheme designed to ensure the proposed mix and tenure of the homes provided accurately reflect local identified housing need, which is consistent with our approach across our wider residential programme.

“Comprehensive redevelopment of Spalding Lifestyle Centre represents a circa £10m investment in Spalding, with further investment in the district forecast for late 2020.”

Kaplan’s current programme commitments secure the delivery of circa 350 units during the 2020/21 period with requirements for further development opportunities across the Midlands.

Michael Gisborne concludes: “The district of South Holland and the wider Lincolnshire Region represents an important geographical location to Kaplan and we will continue to invest in the region alongside our wider programme commitments across the Midlands. It is critical for us to identify and respond to location specific requirements and we look forward to continuing a strong and productive relationship with our current and future partners.”
