The transformation of a brownfield site on the banks of the River Rase in Market Rasen is nearing completion.

The final touches are being made to Chestnut Homes’ Hunters Place development, off Willingham Road, which will provide 66 new homes.

The land was previously home to various industrial buildings. A series of workshop buildings to the front of the site, known as George’s Place, provided a base for a local taxi firm, while two other buildings housed a veterinary surgery.

An area to the north east of the site was used for a concrete production facility, while various warehouse buildings were used as a base for Holton Tractors.

All of the buildings – many of which had become run down and dilapidated – were demolished to make way for the new homes.

Chestnut Homes managing director David Newton said: “Our job is especially rewarding when we’re able to turn brownfield sites like this into high-quality new developments.

“This site has provided a boost to the commerce of Market Rasen.”
