After a very long wait, North Lincolnshire Homes has finally been granted planning permission for its 'emergency control centre' at 1A Ancholme Gardens, Cadney Road, Brigg, which involves change of use from residential to B1 (office).
Some reservations were expressed about the loss of social housing of this type, which is said to be in short supply. But, having weighed up all the evidence, North Lincolshire Council agreed to the application from the Scunthorpe-based organisation which manages the area's stock of ex-council properties.
Coun Nigel Sherwood tells Brigg Blog he suggested North Lincolnshire Homes would be better served by using a portable building for its emergency control centre, or buying a mobile incident trailer, as used successfully by Humberside Police.
For those unfamiliar with Ancholme Gardens, it's a development offering housing for more elderly members of our community.
Also granted: Planning permission to retain five storage containers, Thomas Bell & Sons Ltd, Bigby Road, Brigg.
