Accommodation above a Grimsby pub could be converted into a flat.

An application has been made for change of use of the first floor above The Wine Pipe in Freeman Street, Grimsby, to a flat. It would be a self-contained, three bed flat.

The living accommodation on the first floor has reportedly been vacant for over 40 years, Ross Davy Associates state in an application document, on behalf of the applicants. There would be no extensions to the existing building.

Minor internal and external changes are proposed for the first floor's conversion into a flat. These comprise door and patio door replacement, and change of windows to uPVC.

There are already two bedroom, kitchen and lounge upstairs. An office space would be converted into the third bedroom.

Some of other recent North East Lincolnshire planning applications include:

ATM

HSBC in Victoria Street, Grimsby, plans to replace its outside ATM cash machine. A new ATM model would come in, some out-of-date logo signage updated, and new external CCTV installed.

The new ATM would be bigger compared to the old to account for increased functionality. Not only will cash withdrawals be possible, but also payments in.

The application is slightly unusual as a note on a document states advance approval is required for any site visit, even if only to the outside of the branch. This is because of heightened awareness of criminality and to avoid bank staff reporting to police any such visit on grounds of suspicious activity.

As cash use continues to decline, the number of ATM cash machines has as well in the UK. LINK, which connects virtually UK ATMs put the number of free-to-use ATMs in the UK at the end of last year at 38,480, down five per cent from the year before.

Listed building repairs

A Grade II-listed home in Immingham is proposed to have a number of works. Churchfield Manor dates potentially as far back as the late 1600s, but was refurbished extensively in the 1970s, with few original fixtures remaining.

Listed building consent and permission has been sought for the installation of solar panels, replacement of external windows and walls and other changes, including the reinstatement of chimney breasts to have a fireplace.

The windows and doors being replaced date back to the 1970s. It was made a listed building in 1973.
