By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 15 Jun 2017

Proposals have been lodged for half a dozen new homes on land behind a North Lincolnshire pub.

The plans would see six new dwellings built on land to the rear of The Red Lion, High Street, at Broughton.

Included in the planning application is plans for a private access route and amended access to the pub's car park.

An objection has been lodged by Broughton Town Council on the grounds that the proposals constitute "over-development".

The town council added that the plans will also affect the proximity of access to the local bus stop and crossroad junction.

No objections have been made by any council department.

The application will be put before and determined by North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee on June 21.
