Proposed site off Newmarket Road, Bury St Edmunds

A licensing application has been submitted for a ‘new build’ pub with accommodation in Bury St Edmunds.

The document says Marston’s Plc is proposing to construct a licensed premises suitable for around 180 inside covers on a redevelopment site where Newmarket Road and the A14 meet the roundabout to the west of Bury.

It says: “The development will have the benefit of 65 spaces and access will be via a new side road which will be on a traffic lighted junction.”

It describes an outside terrace, patio and beer garden area and says there will be a ‘substantial quality food offering and limited regulated entertainment’.

The proposed licensing hours are 10am-12am Monday-Thursday, 10am-1am Friday and Saturday and 11am-12am on Sunday, but the applicant also wants to ‘sell to residents and supply their bona fide guests 24 hours a day’.

The application says: “Marston’s Plc have constructed many premises of this nature and on this occasion it is intended that the premises will operate under the brand of a Rotisserie/Milestone which will be supported by family friendly facilities including both internal and external play areas.”

A planning application for the development was submitted in June and withdrawn two months later.

A spokeswoman for the agent, Cerda Planning Ltd, said she was unable to comment on why the planning application had been withdrawn/abandoned or say whether a re-submission was likely.

A spokeswoman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council, the planning and licensing authority, confirmed Marston’s had ‘just put in’ a licensing application but its planning application for the major ‘hotel and bar’ development was withdrawn on August 25.

A spokesman for John Gaunt & Partners, Marston’s licensing solicitors, declined to comment at this time.

A Marston’s spokeswoman said: “We are hoping to resubmit for planning permission for the site on Newmarket Road in the upcoming months.”
