Holton-le-Clay cattery plan gets green light from council
A CATTERY is to open in Holton-le-Clay.
Despite initial objection from the parish council, Lisa Warrener and David Moss have been granted permission to build a 12-pen cattery in Church Lane.
The application was originally for 25 pens but this was halved when the parish council objected to the plans because it is adjacent to Holton-le-Clay Infants' School and they were concerned at the noise and the smell which would be created by so many cats.
Owner Lisa Warrener said: "I am delighted we can now go ahead, we have a lot of work to do before we can open. It will be built to the high FAB (Feline Advisory Bureau) standard for catteries. I have been looking for sometime now for a new challenge that will fit around our family life, and something that will be sustainable in the current tough climate."

East Lindsey District Council approved the application and it is hoped it will be up and running in a few months.
One neighbour opposed the application as did St Peter's Holton-le-Clay Parochial Parish Council (PCC), who are worried it will affect the sale of the nearby church hall.
The church hall is to be replaced with a nearby village hall in the near future, and the PCC intends to sell the church hall to help to fund the replacement.
The objection letter said: "We feel the establishment of a cattery in a large temporary building would have a detrimental effect on our site due to the unsightly outlook from the rear of any property that was built on the site. In addition, there would be a noise issue from the cattery."
But Lisa is confident the cattery will be a success after getting support from other cattery owners.
She added: "I have had a lot of support and advice from Pauline Wiseman from the Waltham Road Cattery in Grimsby, for which I'm so grateful, as she has such a wealth of experience."
