Plans have been revealed to replace the shop front on a Brigg town centre building which has an interesting history.
North Lincolnshire Council is being asked to grant permission to change the shop front at 34 Market Place and the entrance to flats within.
The application's location is described as Riverside Mews Residential Home, which is very close to the County Bridge (see picture above).
Approval is also being sought for an advertisement sign on the front fascia, carrying the words Riverside Mews.
An interesting and very detailed conservation and heritage statement sent to planners outlines the history of the three-storey former Farmers' Company building.
It provided storage for cereal products brought in by local farmers in preparation for sale to millers.
There were loading doorways, with barges and small boats mooring alongside on the Old River Ancholme. The application relates to a building within the Conservation Area.
In a separate application, permission is being sought for a single-storey rear extension at 3 Kings Avenue, Brigg.
North Lincolnshire Council is now considering both.
