Proper 'plaice' in Belton for new takeaway - planners decide
Belton is to get a new hot food takeaway - even though the chips looked down for the project.
Planning staff at North Lincolnshire Council recommended refusal of permission, believing people living nearby in King Edward Street could be disturbed by noise and smell from the premises.
However, the planning committee, comprising elected councillors, decided to give the go-ahead when it held its monthly meeting at Scunthorpe Civic Centre.
Councillors made a site visit to get a grasp of the location of the vacant shop unit.

The applicant - Belton businessman Nim Mattu - exercised his right to speak to the committee, prior to a decision being reached.
Mr Mattu said he was willing to pay for double yellow lines on the road nearby to meet concerns about road safety, while provision for customer parking was being made at the nearby pub.
He also outlined closing time of 9pm, with no trading on Sundays or bank holidays.
Councillor John England (Messingham) said he could not see a lot wrong with the application.
"It is a retail facility that will serve the community," he added.
