Plans to create a new bar and a large housing estate in Brigg are among schemes currently awaiting decisions by North Lincolnshire Council.
Among the applications submitted last year which are still awaiting rulings by planners are converting the ground floor of the former HSBC bank premises in the Market Place into a new licensed venue, and erecting 70 properties off Island Carr Road.
Here's a date-ordered list of pending applications from 2020, including the 'valid from' times assigned to them by the council:
ATHERTON WAY: Erect a two-storey building - uses to include office space and café with associated car parking and landscaping at Plot B, land to the north (July 29).
BRIDGE STREET: Demolish existing buildings and to erect 3 dwellings, a retail unit and associated parking garages at Nos 11-12 (August 5).

Decisions on many applications are delegated to council staff, but some go before the planning committee comprising elected councillors from across the district.
The next of these will take place on Wednesday, February 24. The agenda - indicating whether any of the Brigg applications listed above will be considered - has yet to be made public. Planning meetings are now taking place online.
