Market Rasen Town Council’s planning committee has raised concerns about a proposal to convert a former pub into an office suite.

Scott & Lince – a company run by Market Rasen Business Improvement Group directors Sara Scott and Darren Lince – applied to West Lindsey District Council for planning consent to turn the former Goldmine pub in Market Rasen’s Queen Street into eight 
offices.

But the town council’s planning committee has noted that parking in Market Rasen is already difficult.

Councillors also raised concerns over fire exits in the building.

They say clarification is needed over the number of fire exits for the proposal.

Scott & Lince say the development would create a ‘world-class’ office suite to boost the area’s ‘economic health’ and create more jobs in the town.

The application will be determined by WLDC’s planning committee in the coming months.
