Noble Foods has won planning permission to extend its factory in Lincolnshire. The planning application submitted to North Kesteven District Council in October was approved on 6 December.
Documents filed with the council ask for permission to make changes to the site near Lincoln including: “Erection of extension to factory, reconfiguration of bund, enclosure of existing canopy, alterations to docks, lorry yard and miscellaneous internal alterations.”
A total of 10,634 sq ft will be added to the factory which already has 139,823 sq ft of space.
A council document said: “The proposed extension to the packing facility is located on the north easterly elevation and utilises a recessed area with some projection from the current build line.
“This together with the creation of a melange dock and canopy infill, these are the areas of the scheme which will see the increase in footprint, all other development is considered to be relatively minor, consisting of re-positioning of most elements.
“The proposed materials remain in keeping with the existing structure seeing a green metal cladding finish.
“Reconfiguration of the bund will aid the future screening of the proposed development.”
