Council planners have approved plans to revamp a pub beer garden in Pudsey.
Stonegate Group, which runs the Commercial Hotel in Chapeltown, applied for permission to build a new pergola with landscaping, new fencing and reducing the height of boundary walls in the rear courtyard area.
A planning statement accompanying the application said: “The COVID pandemic has served to remind us that a good quality outside seating area is now extremely important for the long-term viability of hospitality venues such as The Commercial Hotel, by providing a good-quality food and drinks offer in safe surroundings, for local customers and the visitor attracted to Pudsey.
“The proposal will enhance the existing outdoor seating areas and assist in further developing the success of this important local business, providing a pleasant environment for customers and operators alike.”
