The deal follows the authority's commitment to addressing a lack of green open space in the district and developing stronger and healthier communities which residents can take pride in.

Cllr Anthony Casson, South Holland District Council's Portfolio Holder for Facilities Management, said: "We're very pleased that the deal has been completed and we now look forward to developing the site into a park that people from across the district can enjoy.

"We will be looking at the option of installing a play area and other equipment and facilities at the site.

"As part of our Corporate Plan we are fully committed to supporting communities to develop and thrive and to have pride in South Holland.

"I'm confident that the park will provide residents with a first class recreational facility for many years to come."

Back in 2012 the South East Lincolnshire Open Space Assessment found that there will be a shortfall of green open space and parks and gardens up until 2031.

Since the findings were published, South Holland District Council has been actively seeking for opportunities to acquire open space and will continue to do so.
