- Ring O'Bells, 10 Widcombe Parade, Widcombe
Internal and external alterations to include erection of new function room and conservatory within new boundary wall, rebuild of rear addition toilet block with new stair in new glazed link alongside and ground floor level replacement of internal front lobby, removal of internal columns with new beams over and relocation of bar to rear of ground floor following demolition of first level demolition of rear function room & rear addition toilet block.
We are supportive of the scheme’s overall improvement of the building’s accessibility, and the inclusion of specific facilities such as an accessible ground floor WC.
We feel that the proposal offers an improved use of the rear space by integrating it into the overall, functional footprint of the public house, and will enhance the usability of a community asset. We are additionally pleased to see the inclusion of public consultation comments within the D&A Statement, and commend this approach within areas such as Widcombe which have their own distinct community and architectural character.
The use of glazing to the rear will ensure a ‘light touch’ approach which will ensure that the backland character 10 Widcombe Parade will remain visually ‘open’.
