The first phase of work to transform a major town centre site in Gainsborough gets underway next week.
Dransfield Properties and West Lindsey District Council are working in partnership to transform the Market Street, Market Place, Church Street and North Street area of the town.
The development includes a new 56 room Travelodge hotel and work will start next week on clearing the site and demolishing the former Sun Inn building – marking the first step in this major regeneration scheme for Gainsborough.
A ground breaking ceremony will take place on August 15 at 10.30am to mark the start of work on the new project.
The overall development will transform a run-down site and deliver the physical and economic regeneration of the town centre, as well as creating 72 new jobs.
As well as a new hotel the development will bring a new concept in Italian dining to the area with Ponti’s Italian Kitchen on the ground floor including a stunning alfresco dining area and water feature.
The wider regeneration scheme will also include transforming some of the run down town centre shops as well as major improvement to the Roseway Car Park.
