New Inn ‘Motel’ Proposals Unveiled

20150603_StatHill_RdgwayProposals have been submitted for motel-style accommodation at the New Inn in Station Approach.

The planning application for twelve ‘letting rooms’ in a separate building to the pub, envisages the project being built to the rear, on the Station Hill/Ridgeway side of the site.

The views we’ve received so far range from outright opposition in principle, to concerns over specific aspects such as the size, location, traffic issues, loss of trees and effect on the street scene, among others. Some are supportive of a prominent local business seeking to enhance its viability, but many still take issue with aspects of the proposals as they stand.

We would expect the proposal to come before a planning committee towards the end of this month.

Alcohol Licence bid withdrawn in Station Approach

StatAppSvcStn 20141031An application for a licence to sell alcohol at the service station at the bottom of Station Approach has been withdrawn after a knock-back from the licensing committee.

At a hearing recently Cllr. Graham Arthur, on behalf of residents, had argued against the application, following which the bid was deferred in order to gather data on the number of potential customers and other aspects. Shortly after, however, the application was formerly withdrawn by the applicant.
