Changing room and floodlights approved for Blackstones Sports and Social Club

PLANS for a new changing room and floodlights at a sports club have been given the go-ahead.

Blackstones Sports and Social Club in Lincoln Road, Stamford, applied to South Kesteven District Council to replace the existing changing room and shelter belonging to Blackstones Bowls Club.

The club also applied to install two new floodlight poles overlooking the bowling green and add extra lights to two existing poles.

The plans were approved by the district council on Tuesday. Council officers were satisfied the new floodlight poles, changing room and shelter would not impact on neighbouring properties.

Officers also thought the new buildings would improve the view from the street as they would be permanent, not temporary.
