Marina and restaurant plans reconsidered for Fenside Road in Boston
PLANS to create an inland waterways marina, restaurant and other facilities on Fenside Road in Boston are being considered once again.
A report put before Boston Borough Council's planning committee for the 161 berth marina along with offices, shops, brokerage and chandlery, restaurant, workshop, boat yard, new footbridge, parking and access recommended the plans for approval.
The application is an amendment to plans which were refused last year because of objections from residents.
The report said: "The amended plans include, among other things, the redesign of embankments, relocation of the main access into the site, alterations to the car parking layout, alterations to the ground level upon which the workshop will be sited, a new vehicular access to the north to serve the new car park and removal of the proposed holiday accommodation from the application.

"The marina will be for all year round use and will accommodate narrow boats, yachts and cruisers and is aimed at providing a tourist destination."
The marina will be situated to the eastern side of Fenside Road and will cover 7.24 hectares.
Applicant, Mr M Gosling, hopes the development will result in the creation of 20 full time jobs and 33 part time jobs.
In recommending the application to Boston Borough Council's planning committee for approval, the report stated: "Although the site lies within the countryside and therefore the development represents a departure from the development plan, the site is located on the edge of the settlement boundary and within a sustainable location.
"The development will provide a positive enhancement to the area, will help stimulate rural economic development and will promote recreational and leisure facilities in the borough."
