A draft Development Brief has been prepared that considers the potential to redevelop the section of Guildford Street between Wellington Street and Cope Street. Following this consultation exercise, the Council intends to adopt the Brief as a Supplementary Planning Document that will form part of the North East Lincolnshire Local Development Framework. The Adopted Brief will then provide a basis for assessing future planning applications for the Guildford Street site. The Brief will not provide a prescriptive solution for the site’s redevelopment; it will set out a series of design principles which should be followed when more detailed proposals are being prepared.

This consultation invites comments on the content of the draft Brief. The preparation of the draft Brief has been informed by consultation, but the design principles and potential options have not been subject to public ocnsultation previously. This is your opportunity to shape the future development of the site by commenting on the draft Brief.

Copies of the draft Brief are available for inspection at the following locations, during their normal opening hours:

  • The Customer Access Reception, Civic Offices, Knoll Street, Cleethorpes
  • The Customer Access Reception, Municipal Offices, Town Hall Square, Grimsby
  • Grant Thorold Library, Durban Road, Grimsby
  • Renaissance Shop, 33 Victoria Street, Grimsby

The Council will be holding a drop-in event where you can come along and see the draft Brief
