WILL THEY HAVE TO TAKE AWAY TILES?
Most Brigg planning applications are straightforward, but that’s not the case for one currently in the North Lincolnshire Council planners’ pending tray.
Planning permission is being sought by Isfak Ahmed to retain tiles at 7 Bigby Street, the former Spice Hut Indian take-away, now called Diya Spice.
If you look at the roof of the building – both front and back – it has no new tiles. The ones up there keeping out the rain look pretty old.
However, close inspection of the frontage of the building – which is within the conservation area – reveals tiles on the walls, not on the roof.
They are quite attractive to the layman, but we shall have to wait and see what the experts in the planning department think.
