The Storey Group has received planning approval from North East Lincolnshire Council to convert a former bank in Grimsby into a new AGC.

 

The RBS building, which has remained vacant since 2018, is situated on the junction of Victoria Street and George Street, with the unit in question occupying the ground floor.

“Any application to bring back into use any currently unused building within the conservation area is welcome,” said NEL Council heritage officer Louise Jennings. “There are no objections in principle to this application.”

“There are no details on what signage is proposed and what the window displays would consist of. Further details of this should be conditioned to ensure that any of these external changes are sympathetic to the conservation.”

The group had submitted plans for the change of use in December last year, and though the application did not go before the council’s planning committee, approval was granted by a case officer this month.

“There will be no physical alterations to the building,” stated the report. “It is considered that the new use will maintain the visual vitality of the area and indeed the character and appearance of the conservation area.”

The new venue will create eight full-time jobs, and two part-time positions.
