NEW CARE HOME NEAR BRIGG APPROVED
Plans for a residential care home near Brigg have been approved by councillors.
'Change of use' permission was sought for The Mount - a grade two listed property near the B1208 in Castlethorpe.
North Lincolnshire Council's Planning Committee granted the application when it met at Church Square House, Scunthorpe.
Planning permission was requested to change the use of a dwelling into the C2 category (residential care homes).
"The aim for the use is specifically for a residential children’s home for a maximum of five children between the ages of 7 and 17, who have emotional behavioural difficulties," a council report explained.
In granting permission, the council added a condition that when the approved use as a children's home ceases "the property shall revert back to a residential dwelling unless a separate planning permission is granted on that behalf."
