Plans to develop housing at a Barton-upon-Humber industrial estate have returned. Mash Enterprises Ltd have submitted plans for 36 new homes at Humber Road Industrial Estate.
This follows on from a previous application for 50 homes that was withdrawn in March 2022. The location is in flood zone three, so there are no proposed habitable rooms on the ground floor and each home would have a garage.
It is not the only Barton planning application of late with change of use plans in Market Place too. Read on below for a round-up of some of the latest planning applications in North Lincolnshire.
Barton 36 homes and Market Place change of use
The 36 homes would be split between 28 houses and eight apartments. These will range between two and three bed homes.
“This will make it easier for young people to get on the housing ladder,” state Palmleaf Architects in a planning document on behalf of the applicants. Its access road would be via Pine Park.
The homes would be in place of the former Pine Wrap factory site. “The area remains an active industrial estate and is going through a period of redevelopment as opposed to decline,” states the one current objector to the plans.
Elsewhere in Barton, Grade II-listed 17 and 17A Market Place is proposed for a change of use. It will keep a ground floor shop front, currently a beauty business.
But the property above “has lain empty for some time and suffered from the ensuing neglect” a planning document states. So the plan is for the shop area to be reduced in size and remaining building floor space will be split into two flats.
The building would be given “a new lease of life” an application document states. It is also stressed required works will be done “as sympathetically as possible” given the Grade II listed status.
Kirton in Lindsey Station
Occasionally, Network Rail pops up as an applicant in planning submissions to local authorities. For Kirton Lindsey railway station, tactile paving on the platform is proposed.
The station is also Grade II-listed, and the tactile paving would stretch 76 metres along platform one. Network Rail contend the proposed scheme is in the context of the whole station “very limited”.
It also states the need for tactile paving to aid visually impaired passengers is a national requirement. This follows a blind man’s death in February 2020 at Eden Park Station, South London, when he tragically fell from the platform.
Fur-vent support for dog grooming business
Finally, back to Barton for all things related to man’s best friend. There are plans for a home’s domestic garden store to be turned into a dog grooming area in Curtis Close.
But it is permission sought for change of use of a summer house in Waterside Road to a dog grooming business that catches the eye. Ruff to Woof Dog Grooming has already been based there since 2016 and looks after one dog at a time.
A 3 by 4m structure replaced the summer house after it became damaged and the business owner has run the Ruff to Woof full-time since 2018. More than 60 comments have been made on the application by members of the public.
Normally that is a sure sign a planning application has its share of detractors. But happily for the applicant, the significant number of comments are of a universally positive nature, praising the dog grooming business.
Many are from previous clients. “I would not wish to use anyone else,” states one supportive comment. “The location of her workspace is ideal in terms of parking for drop off and pick up,” they add.
“Having groomed my dog for a number of years (who is very anxious dog ) I wouldn’t be able feel confident in taking her anywhere else,” wrote another person in favour. A number of users of the business have also emphasised that they never cross paths with other dogs when dropping off and picking up.
