Lucksbridge Horticulture of Moulton Chapel had sought to replace its current glasshouses and polytunnels with modern, high structures, and to install two biomass plant rooms.

But at a South Holland District Council planning committee meeting, members voted 12-1 against the plans, which committee chairman Councillor Roger Gambba-Jones described as a "wall of glass".

Speaking against the plans at the meeting, local resident Paul Baggaley said: "We're resigned to the fact that it's not over yet and we'll wait to see what the nursery's next step is."
