A large fence surrounding a former pub which ‘wholly spoils’ a village’s appearance has been accepted by North Somerset Council, four months after it was installed.
Tout Ltd has been granted retrospective planning permission for a near 8ft-tall fence which borders the Lord Nelson in Cleeve.
The fence was installed by Tout – which hopes to demolish the building and replace it with a convenience store, petrol station and pub café – to combat fly tipping, but villagers slammed the ‘over-the-top’ hoarding which was raised without planning permission.
The owner was forced to submit a planning application, which has been approved for a temporary period of two years.
Villager Ian Fergusson, in May, said: “Visually and functionally, it is completely over the top.
You may also want to watch:
“It wholly spoils the central village setting and creates significant hazards for pedestrians on this busy section of the A370.”
