Planning Success – Retrospective Works Hartlepool

Planning House are thrilled to secure retrospective planning permission.  The approval related to an extension to a beer garden with a raised decking area at a village pub in Hartlepool.

The applicant carried out work during the Covid-19 restrictions.  Which provided a more pleasant outdoor seating area.  Ensuring the local village pub which is a hub in the community could continue to operate.

Planning House submitted the application to Hartlepool Borough Council. And provided advice regarding a few minor amendments to address neighbour concerns.  As the application was retrospective it was considered by Planning Committee and thankfully received approval.

The applicant and his patrons are delighted that the facility will remain and look forward to a warm summer!
