Foresight and Scartho Community Library have already had to overcome a number of obstacles to progress the recent extension and improvements to the library.

In a recent communication from North East Lincolnshire Planning, the Library has been informed that planning permission would be required for the installation of double-glazed window units which have recently been installed at the front of the Library (having been re-sited from the rear of the building) as the Library falls within the Scartho Conservation Area.

The officer responsible for the letter suggested that the Library apply for retrospective planning permission for the windows, but that they would be unable to support such a request as they consider the units to be detrimental to the visual amenities of the Conservation Area. They requested that the Library either remove the units or submit a planning application within 21 days.

The letter ended by stating that the final decision rests with the Planning Committee.

We, the undersigned, support the continued development of Scartho Community Library, including new windows and doors and agree that it enhances the local community. We do not see it as detrimental to the local area.

The Continued Development of Scartho Community Library petition to North East Lincolnshire Council was written by Scartho Community Library and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
