Two homes in former pub?

Revised plans to transform an empty village pub into homes have been submitted to South Holland District Council.

The Mermaid Inn, Surfleet, closed during COVID and initial plans to convert it into five apartments were approved by the district’s planning committee.
But there has been no interest in the development and discussions have led to the new plans for two semi-detached three-bed homes.
“The proposed development would have a lesser impact on the area as opposed to the five apartments,” says the documentations.
“Other than the installation of a new door on the rear elevation there will be no external changes to the building or external areas.”
The original plans were submitted in January last year and revealed the pub had been running at a loss during the previous four years due to rising utility bills and had been subsidised the owners through their farming business.
The property was put on the market with a price tag of around £700,000 and the highest offer received was £500,00.
