NEW MoT VEHICLE TESTING CENTRE PLANNED IN BRIGG
Plans to create a new MoT vehicle testing centre in Brigg have been announced.
The proposed site is on the Island Carr Industrial Estate, off Bridge Street.
North Lincolnshire Council is now considering the 'change of use' application from Tom Laycock MOTS Ltd.
Planning staff have been told that a successful vehicle repair business has operated here for a number of years; now the proprietor wishes to expand his venture.
The idea is to use a currently vacant unit directly opposite his current premises.
This is seen as offering "an ideal opportunity for this expansion."
MOT testing will be undertaken on vehicles in classes 1-4 - the largest size being a Transit-type van.
Sufficient parking exists near the site, planners have been told, and one full-time person will be employed.
As part of a further application to the DVSA, written planning approval from the local authority is required for the MOT bay.
