North Lincolnshire Council is marketing the former community hub on Brigg's Springbank housing estate as being surplus to requirements and available for sale with a view to being developed for new housing, subject to planning permission being obtained.
There are long-established roadside signs in the town pointing the way to this site off Horstead Avenue if interested buyers want to go along and take a look.
Prior to becoming a hub where local people could meet to access services and take part in events, this area hosted the Brigg Resource Centre, whose directional road signs are still evident near the A18 main traffic lights on Barnard Avenue and on Grammar School Road (close to the Colton Street and Glebe Road turn offs).
The initial buildings on what had been agricultural land were erected in the 1960s when the old Lincoln-based Lindsey County Council, then providing local social services, introduced its Cormac House residential facility.
These premises passed to Humberside County Council in 1974 and then to the North Lincolnshire authority from April 1996.
Anyone interested in acquiring the former well-being and community hub should contact North Lincolnshire Council staff in Scunthorpe by calling 01724 646009. The authority says offers are invited - listing the building and land as 'residential development for sale'. The site covers 1.13 acres (0.45 hectares). View full details here...
