Scunthorpe vehicle repair workshop passes the planning test
Permission to change the use of a disused industrial unit in Scunthorpe to a vehicle repair workshop has been granted.
North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee - meeting in Scunthorpe Civic Centre - approved an application from Mr J Tuplin (JT Motors) relating to Unit 54 on Hebden Road.
There was some concern from local residents about noise that might be generated on the site.
However, the council attached conditions to the planning consent, stipulating work can only be undertaken between 8am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, and between 8am and noon on Saturdays.
Father's Day will soon be upon us, so Don't Forget....
Pop into Alexandra Gifts of Ashby and Pick Up Something for Dad!
Terms: Alexandra Gifts, Alexandra Road, Ashby, Scunthorpe, DN16 2SF.
Contact: 01724 701748
Valid until: Saturday, June 15 2013
The workshop must stay closed on Sundays and bank holidays.
The business will involve mechanical repairs, parts replacement, some grinding and welding associated with MoT work.
There are no plans to carry out crash repairs, panel beating or spray painting.
Councillors were told No 54 was a purpose-built commercial unit on an established industrial estate in a location "considered appropriate for this type of use."
Last year, permisison was granted for a cafe and hot food takeway on this site, but has never been implemented.
SCUNTHORPE: Members of the planning committee are to visit 43 Malvern Road, where planning permission to erect a two-storey side extension is being sought. A decision is expected to follow at the next meeting in mid-October. Councillor Stuart Wilson referred the matter to the committee because of "public interest."
BOTTESFORD: Planning permission was granted by the committee for the installation of a disabled platform lift at the front of 22 Grammar School Walk. North Lincolnshire Council received two petitions - one in support of the application and one against. Bottesford Town Council objected, feeling what was planned would be out of character with the area.
GUNNESS: Planning permission was granted by the committee for a 2m high close-boarded timber fence at 2 Warping Way. One letter of support and one opposing the proposal was received by the council, which had to decide whether the fence would compromise highway safety "and be in keeping with the street scene."
KELFIELD: Planning permission to erect a dwelling with detached garage at Pond Farm, Owston Ferry Road, was refused by the committee, which heard the site was in a high flood risk area near the River Trent.
