SIX NEW HOMES PLANNED IN HAMLET NEAR BRIGG
Outline planning application for proposed residential development (6 dwellings) is being sought for land off Brigg Road, Wressle - the hamlet near Brigg which is part of Broughton parish.
A report submitted with the application suggests the development will have a specific and distinctive design character that responds to the general character of Wressle.
It says the dwellings will be constructed of high quality, energy efficient materials, whilst the proposed landscaping scheme "will enhance the development in its surroundings and assist in assimilating this new built form into the existing natural landscape."
North Lincolnshire Council is now considering this application.
Meanwhile, the council, as the local planning authority, has decided that its prior approval will NOT be required to demolish the former Co-op shop and store at 106 High Street, Broughton.
A report compiled by council staff makes reference to two brick-built buildings which have been vacant for a number of years.
"It is proposed to demolish these buildings and clear the site pending future residential development," the report suggests.
"A separate planning application will be submitted for the development of the site at a later date."
