Outline planning permission is being sought to build a home on part of one of the Brigg area's best-known commercial sites of the not too distant past.
The detached dwelling is proposed for an area at the former Sargent's ice cream factory off Brigg Road, Hibaldstow.
A report sent to North Lincolnshire Council in support of the application says it is proposed to demolish single-storey buildings and clear that area to enable the property to be erected.
"There is sufficient area for a four-bedroom house, garage and garden," the statement suggests.
The application is now under consideration by council planners.
