Seafront bar open by summer?

A PLANNING application to revamp a seafront bar has been submitted, with the new owners hoping it will be open by the summer.

JD Wetherspoon has put forward proposals to North Somerset Council to transform the currently vacant and boarded up Cabot 5 Bars in Knightstone Road, creating new bar and seating areas, new toilets and all new decor and furnishings.

Granite bars will be installed and the first floor toilets look set to be removed to provide a larger customer area.

The basement and skittle bar will not be changed but will be inaccessible to customers.

The proposal also includes retaining the hotel on the upper floors and 20 rooms will be refurbished and will have en suites added.

On average JD Wetherspoon spends about �800,000 redeveloping sites during a 10-week building project, although no set costs or times have been revealed for the Cabot.
