Plans have been submitted for a major new invemstment at a South Lincolnshire shopping and leisure centre.

The proposals for Springfields Outlet, near Spalding, could see about 15 new stores plus three café/restaurant units being built at the site.

In addition to new retail and leisure space (which has been designed to attract premium brands), the plans include improvements to the Festival Gardens, 236 additional parking spaces, and the introduction of more electric vehicle chargers.

The expansion – which is expected to create 350 jobs if approved – would take place on the site of the NFU Mutual building and the car park next to Travelodge. The NFU Mutual already has planning permission for new offices to be built on a new site next to Springfields.

Ian Sanderson, of SLR Outlets, which operates Springfields Outlet, said: “Springfields has gone from strength to strength since opening over 15 years ago and I am proud that we can lead on this significant investment into Spalding.

“New high-quality retail and leisure space at Springfields Outlet will improve our offer to customers, cement our position as the leading shopping and leisure destination in the east of England, and create a large number of new jobs for local people.”

The plans have been submitted to South Holland District Council by the centre’s owners, the Triton Property Fund LP managed by UBS Asset Management. They are available to view on the council’s website.

A decision is expected in the summer.
