A family pub will now be allowed to open until 1am.
South Kesteven District Council decided yesterday (Tuesday) to let The Sugar Mill, off the Elsea Park roundabout in Bourne, extend its closing time from 11.30pm up to 1am every day.
The Marston’s pub will also open earlier, at 8am instead of 10.30am.
Councillors made the decision despite objections from Bourne Town Council and neighbouring residents.
Outline plans to build a nursing home at The Old Quarry in Castle Bytham were also approved at yesterday’s development control committee meeting.
