A new swimming class facility is proposed on an industrial estate in Brigg.
Permission is sought to turn industrial unit no. 6 of Monsal Park, Atherton Way on Ancholme Business Park into a swimming class and training facility. And it is not the only exercise-related business intended for Monsal Park.
Just two doors away, and with separate applicants, plans have been submitted for a personal training and pilates studio.
Read on below to find out more about some of the latest North Lincolnshire planning applications in August.
Industrial units to be turned into swimming pool and ‘world class’ gym
The swimming class proposal is by Splash with Tash Ltd. It already runs classes in Greetwell. “The business already trades from a smaller premises but needs to expand into this larger unit,” a planning document says.
The swimming facility, which will have a 5 by 10m pool, would employ six people, three part time. Proposed opening hours are 8am every day and finishing at 6pm on Sundays, 7pm on Saturdays, and 9pm on weekdays.
Two doors down at Unit 10, John and Layla Woollard want to turn it into the personal training and pilates studio.
It also plans to affiliate with British Weightlifting, subject to approval from them. “This would provide Brigg with the only weightlifting club in Lincolnshire and bring a new Olympic sport to the area,” Acorn Planning say in a planning document on behalf of the applicants.
The quality of the facilities would be “world class” and represent a six figure investment into Brigg, it also states. Opening hours of 5.30am to 10pm, Monday to Friday, and 6am to 6pm on weekends, are sought.
If approved, it will create two full time jobs and six part time coach roles.
Brigg goes big with homes
Staying in Brigg, the initial application for 266 homes off Wrawby Road, the A18, and south of the M180, has been made. Bellways Homes (Yorkshire) and company are seeking to build a total of 556 homes there.
At 49 Wrawby Street, a former hairdresser’s is proposed to be turned into a hot food takeaway. The ladies salon operated for more than 20 years but the site has been vacant for the last two.
If approved, there will be four jobs, three full time, based here. The applicant runs Diyar Pizza Ltd.
Gaming centre among changes proposed to Scunthorpe High Street
The evolution of the high street continues as Scunthorpe‘s could see Admiral Casino expand. Vacant by its existing premises, 116 High Street was last used as a restaurant but is now proposed to be turned into the gaming centre.
There are few other details about the gaming centre, other than the applicant is Luxury Leisure. It is the company behind Admiral Casino.
Further along at 201 High Street, vacant offices could make way for four flats. Permission was previously given for six homes here in April 2021. The amended application is because the property that formed part of 199 High Street has sold.
Churchyard expansion plan
North Kilingholme Parochial Church has asked for permission for change of use to one acre of land next to St Denys Church.
The application form states “it is estimated that there is only ten years left of burial space in the churchyard at St Denys Church and, therefore, the proposal is to secure an additional one acre of land to be used as a churchyard and burial ground”.
The extra land secured will provide ample burial space for 40 years.
