Village pub to reopen

Have your say

A VILLAGE pub is to reopen after being closed for several years.

South Holland District Council’s licensing panel has granted an application for a premises licence for The Chequers at Gedney Dyke.

Neighbours had raised concerns over potential noise nuisance and the panel was guided by the police and the council’s safety and environment team on the matter.

A report following the meeting said: “The panel was mindful of the efforts of the applicant.

“Within the applicant’s representation it was noted that the architecture and design were as such to reduce noise nuisance, ie double glazed windows and insulation.

“It was also taken in good faith, from the applicant’s representation, that the intention was for the premises to be operated following ‘traditional’ pub hours and as a restaurant/public house for the main part.”

The licence was granted up to 12am Sunday to Thursday and 1.30am Friday and Saturday. Other conditions include no music outside the premises after 11pm and that a tamperproof CCTV system be installed and maintained. Footage must be kept for 31 days and produced to the police on request.
