A bar in Solihull town centre is set to revamp its outdoor area as a planning application has been approved along with six other developments in the borough

A pub chain has been given approval for two outdoor seating huts in Solihull town centre.

The Slug and Lettuce in Jubilee Walk, next to Touchwood Shopping Centre, applied to change the external appearance of the outdoor patio area with the introduction of the timber seating huts.

The application was originally submitted by the national chain in March and Solihull Council planners have given it the green light. 

The outdoor area is to remain largely unchanged but the hut structures – with sloping roofs to provide additional covered seating for customers – will replace a section of fixed bench seating and loose furniture items.

Council officers said: “The proposal is considered to be acceptable in terms of its impact upon the character of the area and visual amenity and the impact upon residential amenity.” 

All change for Solihull shop

Meanwhile a Solihull shop has applied for permission for a sign and projecting sign in its window. Hotter in Mill Lane, Solihull, has applied for permission to Solihull Council for a fascia sign and a hanging sign.

The applicant, in a form submitted to authority, says the signs would be an “internally illuminated fascia sign” and “projecting sign”. The application was submitted on April 29 and is awaiting a decision from Solihull planners.
