Plans to build what is seen as a pioneering new home in Brigg have been welcomed by the Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee.
Planning permission to erect a detached bungalow with associated boundary treatments and landscaping on land off East Parade is being sought by social landlord Ongo.
This is a site (pictured below) near the former Glebe Road School and was once occupied by lock-up garages.
The  new bungalow will be  designed to meet all the requirements of disabled people.
Coun Deb Dunderdale, pictured above, told the committee's July meeting that such accommodation was much needed, suggesting that nothing like it was currently available.
The committee decided to support the application and has made its views known to North Lincolnshire Council which will make the final decision.

Brigg Town Council's Planning & Environment  Committee also expressed its support for other applications now going through the planning process:
■ Listed Building Consent to replace sliding sash windows with new timber sliding sash windows, 11 Bigby Street.
■ Erect a single storey side extension and extension to garage, 13 Eastfield Road.
■ Retain change of use of land for the storage of motor vehicles and to retain portable building used as offices/car storage, land on the corner of Engine Street and James Street.
