Refurbishment of a building within Brigg town centre has been given the go ahead by North Lincolnshire Council.
Planning permission has been granted to replace doors & windows with painted timber flush double glazed windows at the former Anglian Water Depot, off Grammar School Road South - on the other side of the street to Wetherspoon's White Horse beer garden.
Council staff prepared a detailed report on the application submitted for Steve Ball Joinery and Building.
The current use of the site is described as storage, office and yard.
The council's delegated assessment report said: "The proposal site is located both within the Town Centre and Conservation areas for Brigg."
The report stressed that the authority's conservation officer had no objections. The proposal "would have limited impacts upon the wider conservation area as well as upon the setting of nearby listed buildings."
In the application, there was also mention of a possible new shop front with potential to be used by a tenant.
A supporting statement submitted to the council explained: "The east elevation of the northern range has an existing galvanised steel roller shutter door, which fronts directly onto Grammar School Road.
"The applicant would like to replace this with a traditional timber shop front for potential use by separate tenants/occupants of the eastern end of the building."

PICTURED: The former Anglian Water depot last year when it was put up for auction by the company, which considered it surplus to requirements.
