A series of planning applications for a village pub have been lodged with a council.

Three applications were submitted in total, which would see signs removed from outside and a smoking shelter and external seating area erected for year round use.

Of the signage, a design and access statement said two fascia signs and the Greene King crown and arrows would be removed, to be replaced with sign-written pub name fascia signs.

The statement said this would make the building’s facade ‘less cluttered’ and help to establish more of an independent nature to the venue, which is a tenanted property.

With regards to the outdoor areas, the design statement said the structures would be built from lightweight timber framework, with flat roofs and be to the back of the property.

These are within semi-enclosed areas and hidden from street view.

A determination on the applications is expected by May 22.
