Plans to turn lorry park into council depot passed


Plans to change a lorry park near the Port of Boston into a council depot have been passed today (Tuesday).

The scheme includes the demolition of the former Coops Cafe cabin and public toilets and the erection of a storage building and parking,

No representations had been made by neighbouring residential properties
