The owners of the Bay Leaf Lounge, on Wellington Road, want to demolish the current building – the former Waggon and Horses pub – and replace it with a new purpose built venue. The new building would house a Sainsbury’s Local on the ground floor, with the restaurant taking up the first floor.
Members of Bollington Town Council have voted to recommend to Cheshire East council that the planning application should be refused.
Members of the public turned out at a meeting last month to have their say. Their objections include traffic, safety and car parking.
The planning application has been ‘called in’, meaning the decision will no longer be made by planning officers at Cheshire East but will go before the Northern Planning Committee.
