Brigg Town Council has decided it is "in support" of the three latest local planning applications submitted for consideration.
The Planning & Environment Committee, meeting in the Angel Suite, raised no objection to the following:
- Replace shop front and entrance to flats and advertisement consent to display front fascia signage at Riverside Mews Residential Home, 34 Market Place (close to the County Bridge).
- Erect single storey rear extension at 3 Kings Avenue.
- Undertake crown reduction by pollarding back to previous pruning points on a black poplar identified as T1 in (and subject to) Tree Preservation (Bigby High Road, Brigg) Order 1976 - at 63 Bigby High Road.
Coun Mike Storey, pictured above, chaired the first Brigg planning meeting of 2019, and it did not prove a lengthy one.
The application submitted to planners about the black poplar explains that pollarding work is required to reduce shading and to rejuvenate the crown - thereby extending the life of the tree.
