Long-established Glanford Boat Club is seeking approval for a new building which will give it a real lift.
Founded in the 1930s, the club is asking North Lincolnshire Council for planning permission to erect a steel building frame at its base off Island Carr Road, close to where the Old and New rivers meet.
A consultant's report compiled on behalf of the club explains: "The building is required to house a site based mobile crane used mainly to lift boats out of the river before winter and lift the boats back into the water during the spring, plus boat maintenance during the summer months."
The new building will be clad in steel sheeting, and the selected dark green colour will blend in with the surrounding countryside, matching that used on an adjacent building.
North Lincolnshire Council is now considering the application and Brigg Town Council will be consulted as part of the planning process.
