Redevelopment of Sleaford Maltings

  • Planning permission was granted on the 14th November 2011 for the conversion of Sleaford Maltings.
  • Permission granted for the mixed use development of 204 residential units, 5,800 square metre health care and community facilities, 1391 square metres of restaurant/retail, associated car parking and development of 24 residential units.
  • This site is being developed by Gladedale - now known as Avant Homes.
  • The owners estimate that the scheme represents a £56Million investment within Sleaford and will support 200 construction jobs and 500 permanent jobs when fully completed and operational.
  • The existing planning permission restricts full occupancy of the Maltings in advance of the opening of the Link Road (for more information on this please click on the following link). This was a stipulation of LCC Highways and was based on an assessment of highways impacts.
  • There is a current planning application to vary the restricted condition - both LCC Highways and Network Rail have objected to.
