NEW BRIGG MEMORIAL CAN NOW BE ERECTED
A new Holocaust Memorial sculpture in Brigg has received the go ahead.
North Lincolnshire Council planners have given approval for the structure to be erected.
The location will be the Millennium Green, pictured above, between Elwes Street and the Old River Ancholme.
The sculpture will be made from Corten steel and has been designed by a student from Sir John Nelthorpe School, who won a local competition relating to the project.
A report prepared by North Lincolnshire Council planning staff said: "The sculpture is situated away from the boundaries of the site, and therefore will not have a detrimental impact on the amenities of nearby residents. No adverse comments have been received as a result of publicity for the application."
Brigg Town Council is among local authorities which remember Holocaust victims with a poignant ceremony held at dusk every January.
The town's first Holocaust Memorial was erected many years ago within the town centre's Angel building.
