New pub could create 40 jobs

FORTY jobs may be created if a pub is built on a development on the outskirts of Weston.

Greene King has applied to North Somerset Council for permission to build a public house and restaurant at the Weston Gateway development off Somerset Avenue.

The site, which may be as large as 800sqm, would be part of the larger development which will eventually contain up to 68,000sqm of office space, an 80-bed hotel and 850 sqm of retail space.

The council approved the development last year, and work has already begun on a new office building which will be the headquarters for Knightstone Housing.

Greene King says the part two-storey and part one-storey pub will create up to 40 local jobs.

In the application the company says it will be similar to a farmhouse and barns in appearance, ‘reflecting the former history of the site as part of a large agricultural holding’.

If the application is approved 80 new car parking spaces will be created as well as new access and landscaping. A decision is due by December 28.
