HGV plan for Belton could be rejected

PLANNING officers are recommending the refusal of an application relating to land on the Sandtoft Industrial Estate in Belton.

Pro Truck Auctions Ltd has applied to North Lincolnshire Council (NLC) for permission to change the use of five hectares of land to the storage and parking of HGVs and plant.

Planning officers have recommended rejecting the application as the proposal is contrary to both the council’s local plan and core strategy.

Belton Parish Council raised no objections to the application.

NLC planning committee will make a formal decision when it assembles on Wednesday, January 11.
