D-DAY PLUS ONE FOR PLAN TO PUT ADVERT SIGNS ON BRIGG MONUMENT WAR MEMORIAL ROUNDABOUT
A Yorkshire-based company's application seeking permission to put advertisement signs on the perimeter of the Monument war memorial roundabout in Brigg led to an objection from our Town Council which considered this to be an unsuitable location.
This led to North Lincolnshire Council, which makes final decisions on all applications, putting the matter forward to be considered at its monthly planning committee meeting in Scunthorpe next week.
However, a report prepared for councillors ahead of that meeting reveals that the company has now removed its proposal to put adverts on the A18 Monument circle.
It is continuing with an application to put signs on 16 other roundabouts across North Lincolnshire.
D-Day for all those will be next Wednesday when the planning committee assembles for its July meeting at Scunthorpe Civic Centre.
Elsham Parish Council has raised 'clutter' objections to proposed advert signs in its area on the A18/M180 roundabout.
North Lincolnshire Council's conservation officer also objected to advert signs near the Monument in Brigg, pointing out the memorial's listed building status and suggesting such signs would have a negative impact on its setting and significance.
The Monument lists the names of local men who lost their lives in the service of their country. It was erected circa 1920.
