A council has approved plans to reopen a small hotel in Bury St Edmunds with additional guest bedrooms and a public restaurant and bar.

Residents and Bury Town Council had lodged a number of objections to the scheme for Ounce House in Northgate Street, including on grounds of noise and disturbance, parking and access issues.

But St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s development control committee approved the proposal yesterday, as recommended by officers.

Chestnut Group, which submitted the application, plans to turn the former private home and hotel into a mixed use restaurant and small hotel with nine guest bedrooms.

It also plans to build a car park at the back of the property and make alterations to parking at the front to provide a total of 18 spaces, four fewer than an earlier proposal which was refused.
