24 home plan submitted for former Scunthorpe school site

Plans have been submitted for 24 new homes on the former Crosby Primary School site in Scunthorpe.

Social landlord Ongo Homes has proposed the development on the former school site on Frodingham Road, which was demolished in July 2017.

The school was demolished as part of a £5 million relocation project to combine primary and nursery pupils in a new building off Normanby Road.

Site location for the 24 home development on Frodingham Road.

Members of the council’s planning committee will discuss the application on Wednesday, March 14, after Crosby ward Councillor Christine O’Sullivan called the application in for discussion as a matter of significant public interest.

Ongo has proposed a number of affordable homes on the site as part of the project along with parking access and associated works.

Concern was raised by North Lincolnshire Council’s conservation officer about the application as no agreement was reached with the local authority on how the development affected the grade II listed Angel War Memorial.

Ongo has since allocated more land to the war memorial and submitted a separate application to create a garden around the angel.

The council’s conservation officer then withdrew the objection to the plans.

The council’s planning officer has recommended that members of the planning committee approve the application subject to a section 106 agreement.
