Village pub found unlikely to disturb residents

Conversion of a North Yorkshire village shop to a pub is unlikely to harm nearby residents' amenity, an inspector has decided.

The inspector judged that the proposed pub was likely to cater mainly for people living within walking distance in the village, so customers were unlikely to linger outside after closing time.  She noted that no external seating was proposed and the appellant had confirmed that no drinks would be allowed outside, even for smokers.

As the appellant was not proposing to use television or play music, she was satisfied that residents in flats above the premises were unlikely to be disturbed. In a small rural village, she remarked, the proximity of pubs to residential properties is not uncommon.
