Starter-homes plan at Tradelight

Plans for seven ‘starter homes’ in Market Rasen have been put forward by lighting supplier Tradelight.

The company has sought approval for the three-bedroomed homes with parking on land off Serpentine Street on an area of land known as ‘Last Port of Call.’

The homes would be built in two blocks of two and a block of three behind Tradelight’s Oxford Street premises.

The proposal appears to be a revision of an earlier proposal, which was approved by West Lindsey District Council, for seven ‘eco-friendly’ houses on the site.

It appears a 10,000 square metre new commercial expansion, which also has planning permission from the council, will go ahead as originally-planned.

Tradelight’s Roy Goodyear was unavailable for comment, but he recently told the Rasen Mail that with the onset of winter, it was unlikely that work would have started on the eco-homes until the Spring.

The premises have also been the subject of renewed speculation when the Rasen Mail recently revealed discount retailer Aldi had some years ago been interested in buying the site, but had found it too small.
