PLAN TO ALTER THE OLDEST BUILDING IN BRIGG WINS SUPPORT
A proposal to make internal changes to the oldest building in Brigg has been welcomed.
Listed building consent is being sought to erect a glazed floor, alter toilet provision and install a fan extraction system at Sir John Nelthorpe Upper School, on Grammar School Road, pictured above.
This involves the original 17th century school room and is the town's only grade one listed building.
When Brigg Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee considered the proposal, Coun Jane Kitching said it would enhance the historic building.
She loved the idea of taking up carpets and having a wooden floor of the type that would have been there originally.
The committee also expressed support for retained change of use to offices at The Cedars, on Bigby Road, and for a rear extension to be added at 14 Springfield Rise.
However, it is objecting to an application to retain change of use of land for motor vehicle storage and retain portable cabin offices on land to the south of Engine Street - one of the concerns expressed being flood risk.
North Lincolnshire Council will now make a final decision on all four applications.
The Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee met in the Angel Suite Lounge on Monday, April 29 - three days before the election.
Committee chairman Coun Mike Storey thanked his colleagues for their hard work in past years.
