Temporary closure of St Catherine's Road car park

A town centre council car park used by the public on evenings and weekends is to close on Friday 16 June to allow site preparation for Grantham's new multiplex cinema.

The initial work on St Catherine's Road car park is for archaeological exploration and is expected to take two to three weeks.

Site owner SKDC hopes to then reopen the car park, to the rear of the Tollemache Inn, to the public pending the next major site work.

Motorists are being encouraged to use the nearby Welham Street multi-storey car park which is visible from the St Catherine's Road car park.

Plans for the new cinema include five screens, restaurants and office space - all within a short walk of St Peter's Hill.
