    Businesses oppose restricting seasons

    By Anita Newton on July 13, 2012 at 15:23 pm

    Lincs Design Consultancy’s Andrew Clover, who feared a reduced season would disincentivize businesses from investing in the coast. Given the existence of a sea defence strategy to ‘hold the line’ for the next hundred years, Mr Clover felt the district council’s proposals were unnecessary to preserve safety.


    He said: “East Lindsey’s strategy is fire fighting, not long term.”

    ldc were appointed to develop the proposed conversion and alteration of existing garage to form holiday cottage in Louth. The owners of the existing dwelling wished to convert their existing garage into a holiday cottage in the centre of Louth.

    In order to do this the proposals provided a new extension whilst retaining the existing garage structure and form (due to planning restrictions in the Louth town centre conservation area). Working within the limits of the existing headroom and providing drainage to the site would have been problematic if it wasn’t for having discussions on the proposals prior to and during construction. Even in such a small conversion there were still some difficulties which we had to work together to overcome with regards to fire escape (as the conversion was to a holiday cottage) -  the result is a 5* holiday cottage which the client is extremely happy with.
