Plans to build a refreshments kiosk on grassland near Portishead marina have been rejected by North Somerset Council.
The authority’s planning and regulatory committee rejected the idea, which would have seen refreshments such as ice cream sold from a new building in Pill Park.
While planning officers were happy for the scheme to be approved, the council members were not.
Cllr David Pasley, who represents Portishead East, said: “I recommended refusal for it and it was unanimously rejected.
“Our planning policy for that area is that area is regarded as an amenity and open space and it should be kept that way.”
