Public notices: Application for 'garden pods' at Hurley's Rising Sun pub

HURLEY 134453-4

The Rising Sun pub in Hurley has submitted a planning application for new covered outdoor seating and an area to cook pizzas.

The watering hole, in Hurley High Street, is looking to build a number of ‘garden pods’ featuring seating, lighting and heating.

A covered pergola is also included in the plans.

Applicant Design ID, who has submitted the proposals on behalf of The Rising Sun, said in a planning statement: “We believe the proposed works will significantly improve the garden area without having a detrimental impact on the surrounding area.”

Hurley Parish Council has objected to the proposals due to fears over increasing parking pressure in the area.

It also raised concerns over the prospect of outdoor cooking creating ‘additional smells’.

The parish council added that the plans could lead to more outdoor noise for nearby neighbours.

Visit www.rbwm.gov.uk/home/planning and search 22/00511/FULL to view the application.
