Kewstoke development given green light

A KIOSK and set of public toilets in Kewstoke which was turned into a farm shop has been given official approval.

A KIOSK and set of public toilets in Kewstoke which was turned into a farm shop has been given official approval.

The area, between Kewstoke Road and Beach Road, has already been converted but has now received retrospective planning permission.

The former confectionary kiosk is stone-built and was converted into a farm shop at upper ground level and a store with toilet below this year.

Two neighbours wrote letters of objection, making comments like it caused a loss of privacy when customers were sitting on the terrace looking directly into their houses and that the conversion caused more noise. They suggested seating could be repositioned to the other side of the shop.

The applicant was given permission for the alterations but was told the roof terrace should only be used for maintenance and should be closed to the public. It cannot be used for customer seating or eating and needs to be kept clear of tables and chairs.
