The site in Wragby which used to be home to E.H. Thorne Beehives Ltd is to be redeveloped to make way for housing.

Despite objections from some neighbours about over-intensification, the plot off Louth Road is to be given over to 13 houses - six each of two and three bedrooms, plus one of one bedroom.

Where possible, the existing industrial buildings will be converted to retain the character and history of the site.

The premises have been vacant since early 2012 when the beehive firm relocated to purpose-built premises at nearby Rand.
