The Council is considering a landlord and tenant friendly Selective Licensing Scheme within parts of the East and West Marsh areas.   It’s intended to tackle the issues of crime, anti-social behaviour and poor housing conditions. We’re consulting with residents of the area, landlords and members of the public so this is an opportunity for you to influence how the scheme will be developed and carried out.

Residents & the public Survey

Tearoom and Pet Crematorium Survey

Deadline 4th February 2020

North East Lincolnshire Council is carrying out a project to improve the accessibility and affordability of our bereavement services.

They’re looking at the options of a tearoom and pet crematorium. Any income generated by the pet crematorium and tearoom will be used to re-invest in the service.

The tearoom would be in the grounds of the Crematorium, Weelsby Avenue, Grimsby, based in the former Crematorium Lodge.  This will bring a disused building back into use and will provide refreshments for visitors to the cemetery and crematorium and offer a venue for wakes and funeral teas. A flower shop will also be incorporated into this building. NELC would like the public to help them agree on a suitable name for the tearoom, which will have its own garden and offer a tranquil setting for refreshments.
