IMPROVEMENT WORK INSIDE GRADE ONE LISTED SCAWBY HALL GAINS APPROVAL
Listed building consent has been granted to overhaul the existing heating system at Scawby Hall, on Vicarage Lane, Scawby.
The 17th century hall is one of only a handful of grade one listed buildings in the Brigg area.
A statement submitted with the application assured North Lincolnshire Council planners there will be minimal impact on the actual fabric of the building.
It says that overhauling the existing heating system will enable a more constant temperature to be maintained.
No objections were raised to the application from Mr and Mrs Tom Nelthorpe.
North Lincolnshire Council's conservation officer considers the new heating system is necessary "for the continued habitation of the Hall" and notes the system has been designed to limit the impact on the historic fabric of the building by utilising existing ducts and pipework routes.
The new radiators are of a style considered suitable for this building.
