A new development of houses and office space could clean up an eyesore in Market Rasen if residents approve of the venture.

Tradelight in the town’s Oxford Street is looking to build two houses together with two units of offices and is keen to hear what people think.

Group management consultant for Tradelight, Roy Goodyear said: “We have done a lot of ground work to look at the best way to clean up the site behind out building and Serpentine Street.

“We want to give Serpentine Street back as a residential area, so there will be no access on to the site from here and believe that this sort of office accommodation would work in Market Rasen too.”

The proposed development would see two semi-detached houses built on Serpentine Street, next to the social club, an area currently fenced off and derelict.

The two blocks of offices would be built in the yard behind the existing building in Oxford Street.

The site was previously a builders’ merchants yard and historically part of the Market Rasen Brewery Company.

And to keep the historic aspect, the development has been named Brewery Yard.

Mr Goodyear said: “We believe there are many businesses who would like to work in Market Rasen, but don’t want their clients to go down allies or onto industrial sites.”

The two bespoke office units would each feature four office suites and on-site parking would also be provided.

He said: “We have already had a number of enquiries, mostly local people.

“We see this as a community project - we really believe in doing local things for local people and that this investment, which is huge for a company our size, will bring a bonus to the local economy. But we are keen to get local opinion before submitting the plans.”
