Demolition plans have been submitted as part of a scheme to redevelop Crowle Market Place.

As the Bells exclusively revealed last month, No 6 Market Place has been bought by North Lincolnshire Council with the aim of clear the site to make way for a residential and commercial building.

As part of the £1 million-plus work there are also plans to sell land adjacent to the Cross Keys pub for the creation of a bistro.

Once cleared the space occupied by No 6 Market Place would be used for additional car parking in the town, as a temporary measure.

The demolition application lists a catalogue of problems with the existing building which was bought by the council for £140,000.

It would cost about £182,000 to bring the existing building back up to standard.

“That would mean the total expenditure would total £322,000 and it is anticipated its open market value after refurbishment is unlikely to be in excess of £200,000,” the application states.

A previous application to demolish the building was granted in 2007.

As well as the new mixed use building and bistro a new Co-op store is currently taking shape in the town’s Market Place.
