See what people in Caistor think of our plans for 2-4 Market Place
2-4 Market Place had been a local food store for many years, including Spa, Costcutter and most recently the Lincolnshire Co-operative Ltd. It is still known to many as ‘The Old Co-op’. However, this complex set of five interlinked listed buildings was over three floors with numerous corridors and staircases, which were not a good fit for a modern food store.
When the Lincolnshire Co-operative Ltd relocated, the property was put up for sale, but there were many challenges for any new owner to finding a viable future use for the buildings. As time went on and the buildings remained vacant, the concern for their future and the impact they were having on the town and the community grew.
In 2016, discussions with the community and key stakeholders began. With the help of Heritage Lincolnshire, a local charity that supports our county’s heritage, a series of public consultation events were delivered and with the community’s help a vision for the buildings, with a broad mixed use, began to be formed.
This is a major capital project requiring £2.4 million, which Caistor and District Community Trust was able to announce it had raised in December 2022. Full details here . Work is expected to commence in the first half of 2023
