Work on planning details for the next stage in the redevelopment of Crowle Market Place is still ongoing.

An application for the demolition of No 6 Market Place, a property now owned by North Lincolnshire Council, is still awaiting the go-ahead.

But Coun John Briggs, cabinet member for asset management, culture and housing, said this week: “We are well on our way with the redevelopment of Crowle Market Place. We are working alongside English Heritage to ensure that all factors are taken into consideration for the redevelopment and they are happy with the proposed plans.

“Crowle Market Place is a thriving centre and planned developments will make it even better for the future for the whole of Axholme North.”

It is intended to replace No. 6 Market Place with a residential and commercial building, and car parking space, with land next to the Cross Keys pub earmarked for a new bistro. A new Co-op store has already boosted the area. Work completed by the Crowle Market Place Delivery Group, the Council and Yorkshire Forward has seen changes to the road network, with the new Brunyee Road linking the market place to the north of the town. More bus stops link the extended market place with Crowle’s medical centre, library and local link. A water feature and seating have made the area more attractive. Market Place Delivery Group with English Heritage will now ensure the Conservation Area Status remains intact.
