Kinema development plans approved

East Lindsey District Council has granted the Kinema in the Woods planning permission to build a third auditorium next to the existing cinema, which is in  the Woodhall Conservation Area, and to create a new car park. The decision is subject to conditions, some of which reflect the concerns of nearby residents and other interested parties such as Lincolnshire County Council (Highways, Environment & Economy, Countryside Access) and Woodhall Spa Parish Council.

The long list of conditions includes prior approval of a Tree Protection Plan, details of external materials, surface and foul water disposal plans, proposals for the provision of bird nest features and bat boxes, cycle parking plans and details of doors and windows. The planned car park must be completed before building work starts, and no trees or shrubs may be felled between February and July. The development must be begun not later than the expiration of three years beginning with the date of the permission, 06/03/2018.       Continue reading
