Council to consider pub plan

AN EXPANSION plan for the Sovereign Hotel on Guy St will be debated by the council next week.

An application was lodged with the Southern Downs Regional Council in June for council approval to create alterations which would accommodate an indoor and outdoor dining area, with a pizza oven facing Guy St.

The application went on public display and has attracted several objections from nearby residents.

The primary concerns as outlined in a report which will go before councillors at the Planning and Environment Committee meeting on Wednesday, include noise and car-parking problems in what objectors describe as a "quiet residential area".

Plans by the hotel's owners for the dining area would add 100sqm of extra floor area to the Sovereign.

A brickwork wall between the dining area and the nearest residence to the north would be intended to absorb noise and the application states a 35m buffer would be created, which one objector is disputing, saying it would be more like three metres.

The dining area would cater for up to 48 patrons at a time, with the hotel employing three casual staff working between four and 30 hours per week.

Councillors on Wednesday will vote on a recommendation by planning department officers to approve the Sovereign Hotel expansion, subject to nearly 40 conditions.

The report can be viewed by visiting southerndowns.qld.gov.au and clicking on the "Council meetings" link.
