Planning permission has been granted to local firm CLS Civil Engineering Ltd to erect five industrial units with associated car parking and landscaping on land to the north of Plot B, off Atherton Way, Ancholme Business Park.
The application submitted to North Lincolnshire Council describes these as "start up units" to be located near the M180 and indicates 10 full-time "proposed employees."
The only objection submitted to the local authority during the application's consultation period came from nearby Brigg Primary School, expressing concerns over highway safety and increased traffic.
However, a North Lincolnshire Council assessment report compiled by local authority staff and recommending the granting of permission notes that the existing highway network was constructed to accommodate HGV movements as it serves an existing industrial estate.
This report says that no issues were raised by highways staff on pedestrian or highway safety grounds "and this site has previously been allocated for future industrial use."
Brigg Town Council supported the application.
The units approved are to be located within a building set back approximately 60m from the highway. This allows for an area of hardstanding to be positioned at the front with 21 spaces for staff and visitor parking, the planning report says.
CLS Civil Engineering Ltd is based on Atherton Way. This road was named after Coun Terry Atherton, a former Leader and Mayor of Brigg-based Glanford Borough Council, who took a keen interest in industrial development and local job creation schemes.
