Rehab Fears For College
The owners of a former county agricultural college are considering housing recovering drug addicts and ex-prisoners there, it has emerged. The Angel Group, which owns Caythorpe Court, near Sleaford, abandoned plans to use it as an accommodation centre for asylum seekers in March. At the time the firm announced it would revert to its original aim of using the 31-acre site for housing. But the London-based property group also said it would consider alternative uses for the former hunting lodge. Now the Caythorpe Action Group, which opposed the asylum seeker plan, has said it is worried it could be used as a rehabilitation centre for recovering drug addicts and prisoners. In a statement, campaign spokesman Terry Norman said: “We, the Caythorpe Action Group, are somewhat perturbed by this news. “The parishioners of the village are now very very concerned to hear of this development.” The Angel Group was unavailable to comment on its plans for the site.
