The Carnival is over in Barton but Seekers of a pub of their own will be spoilt for choice in Brigg
The way is now clear for another North Lincolnshire pub to be demolished - this time in Barton where the Carnival is well and truly over for drinkers who frequented one of the town's newer pubs.
North Lincolnshire Council planners have decided that the authority's prior approval is not required to knock down the disused Carnival Inn, on Tofts Road.
The Salvation Army wishes to create a new centre and seek permission to put housing on the site.
The council was given prior notification of the proposed demolition of the two-storey pub building but has raised no objections.
