People living in Brigg and the surrounding district can help to shape the future development of North Lincolnshire, including having a say about where they think new housing developments should be built.
North Lincolnshire Council is inviting residents and businesses to comment on a 'preferred options' document that sets out the council’s "favoured approach for the new Local Plan."
This plan sets the overall strategy for development in North Lincolnshire up to 2036. It contains key strategic policies, detailing land for new jobs and the number of new homes to be built, the council says.
The consultation, which started on February 14, asks residents what they think about the council’s preferred options within the Local Plan, including housing, settlement boundaries for villages and towns, local landscape designations, and a new suite of policies relating to planning applications.
There are a number of ways to take part in the consultation.
You can visit a public consultation session in Brigg's town centre Angel Suite on Thursday, February 20, between 3pm to 7pm, and talk to advisers. View the plan and discuss any issues prior to providing comments to the council. To find out when these are, visit
People can also view the Local Plan and leave comments online at by 5pm on March 27.
Other public consultation events are taking place in other towns across North Lincolnshire.
Coun Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for place shaping, said: “North Lincolnshire’s Local Plan supports building a better future, which helps us achieve our goals: growing the economy, keeping residents safe and well, and enabling our communities to flourish.
“I would encourage residents to go along to one of the consultation events to take a look at the Local Plan and let us know what they think. If residents are unable to make any of the events, they can share their views online.
“We need to think about being a sustainable area, where people of all ages want to, and can, continue to live and work. The council is interested in hearing the views of all our residents to help guide and shape the future of our area and I would encourage everyone to take the time and to get involved.”

Brigg Blog has waded through the mass of information made available online. In a document called Meeting Our Housing Need is a list of Deliverable/developable extant planning permissions above 10 dwellings or more 2019/20-2035/6.

It's not only the number of houses, it is also the associated infrastructure....drains, sewage caoacity, school places, doctors' surgeries, employment opportunities , social care...In addition, the population of Brigg as a town, including Scawby Brook, could potential reach circa 8.5k and, as such, its size could be a magnet for multi-nationals,ie Macs, and could influence expansion of existing retail outlets..

We still await patiently for the redevelopment of the station area at Brigg.
