Councillors in Crowle have wholehearted welcomed a planning application made to North Lincolnshire Council to demolish the derelict 6 Market Place in the town.
They agreed it was long overdue, and have left it in the hands of North Lincolnshire planners to make the final decision.
The Crowle members were also in favour of the application by the Co-op to install a cash machine are part of the development – but hit on a stumbling block when it came to making formal comments, since a number of them had to declare an interest because they held Co-op cards and were customers of the chain.
The also supported an application by Stuart Wallace to build two detached garages at the rear of his Funeral Director’s business on the High Street. They will be use to house funeral cars.
And they’re to ask North Lincolnshire Council how it intends to monitor the Certificate of Lawful Use for land, granted for the transport of up to 3,000 tonnes of hay and straw in a year along Godnow Road. “How will they know when that limit has been reached?,” wondered Coun Ron Stewart.
