Anger over new plan for former pub site
OBJECTIONS have been made to the latest plan to develop the site of the former Railway Hotel in Yate.
A planning inspector recently dismissed an appeal by the Railway Building Company, which was seeking consent for the building of up to ten houses on the Station Road plot.
Now a new outline application has been sent to South Gloucestershire Council by Bristol-based Dixon Design asking for permission to put 43 flats on the land.
Opponents of the new scheme have said they are angry and shocked at the proposal.
They said objections had been made to the first plan over the number of houses being “squeezed” onto the site so the new proposal was “so much worse”. They also raised concerns over what they said were too few parking spaces to be provided.
The Railway was controversially demolished despite local people trying to save the building.
