Time restrictions likely if conference centre gets go-ahead

WESTON College looks likely to get the go-ahead on plans to transform a disused building once used for art classes into a conference centre.

But the refurbished Hans Price building in Lower Church Road would have restrictions on usage time and noise under conditions attached to a recommended approval of the planning application.

The proposal is set to be decided on by councillors on North Somerset Council’s west area committee today (Thurs).

Last week, the Mercury reported on how nearby residents in South Terrace were concerned the ‘multi-function’ use of the building could lead to disturbance.

It followed the college ditching its initial proposal to expand the three-storey building and transform it into a performing arts theatre last year.

In a report to councillors by case officer Andrew Stevenson, approval of the planning application was recommended with conditions. The conditions included restricting the usage of the building from 8.30am-9pm from Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm on Saturday.
