The popular Spalding School of Dance wants to move to new, purpose-built premises at Low Fulney.

Hundreds of youngsters aged two and over attend classes in styles including ballet, tap and hip-hop.
The business is going so well that it has now outgrown its base in Horseshoe Road and has drawn up plans to relocate. The new facility on agricultural land at Rangell Gate would include three dance studios and a one-bedroom flat.

A design and access statement by Holbeach St Johns chartered architect Andrew Wright said: “The intention is to relocate from the dance school’s current location in Horseshoe Road, Spalding which is inadequate in terms of space and parking facilities.2

The new base has 50 parking spaces planned. The internal floor area would be about 570sq metres and include changing/toilet facilities, entrance foyer, sales area, reception and workshop/props store.
The flat for a maintenance/groundsman includes living and kitchen facilities.

Mr Wright’s statement said: “The proposal will enable the applicant to meet the growing need for this type of facility in Spalding and the surrounding catchment area of this part of South Holland.
“Low Fulney already boasts a number of successful, diverse and growing businesses. The scale, form and appearance of the proposals are in keeping with the typology of the business premises surrounding the site.
“Landscaping proposals have been carefully considered in order to provide a ‘soft edge’ to the development.”

School principal Claire Patman has applied to South Holland District Council for signage planning permission.
