A Portishead marina restaurant has been given planning permission to extend its covered seating.

Aqua, off Harbour Road, has been given planning permission by North Somerset Council 
to provide a retractable 
canopy and glazing for outside diners.

The proposal was met with some opposition from those living in the area who feel it will increase noise levels in a residential area, but those concerns were not deemed sufficient for the council to oppose the scheme.

In its decision notice, the council says: “The site is located in the Portishead docks area where there are existing 
high levels of pedestrian movement and it is not considered that the outdoor seating area would cause any further noise and disturbance generated than that of the existing restaurant.

“The applicant has also submitted a noise attenuation test report which shows 
the proposed canopy would reduce the noise breakout.”
