Plans to become the premier bar in Scunthorpe include new entrance off Doncaster Road
A new entrance is planned to help establish The Light as the number one bar in Scunthorpe and attract more customers.
It is seeking permission to create a new entrance from Doncaster Road.
The building fronts on to Oswald Road, close to Britannia Corner.
North Lincolnshire Council, which is now considering whether to give planning consent, has been told the new owner wants to make changes to improve the venue and bring in new customers.

The main proposal is to relocate the principal entrance from its current location on Oswald Road to the side of the building, off Doncaster Road.
It is also proposed to build a small canopy over the doors to create a "focal point" on Doncaster Road.
The canopy will house downlighters to illuminate the entrance and attract people’s attention as they walk up and down the "night time pedestrianised areas" of Doncaster Road, Frodingham Road, High Street and Oswald Road.
It is hoped the proposed new entrance and canopy "will complement and enhance the service provided at this facility."
Comments about the application - lodged by Mark Deans, of the Light Bar - will be welcomed by North Lincolnshire Council up to March 18.
A decision is not expected to be made before late April.
Planners have been told Mr Deans recently became the new owner of The Light Bar "and has aspirations to become the premier bar in Scunthorpe."
Meanwhile, in Broughton, planning consent is being sought by Punch Taverns to install illuminated and non-illuminated fascia and hoarding signs at the Dog and Rat pub on the High Street.
