A planning application has been submitted to convert a disused former bank in Pinner into a pub.
A branch of public houses known as The Three Wishes has made a second application to convert the old Halifax building on Bridge Street after being initially rebuffed.
Harrow Council rejected The Three Wishes’ first application on December 1 due to potential noise pollution issues.
Their report read: “The applicant has failed to provide details on the noise impacts arising from the development and its impact upon the residential amenities of the occupiers of the upper-floor flats and, when considered with the proposal to include live music at the premises, would lead to unreasonable noise disturbance to the occupiers of the flats above and adjoining the site.”
Despite this setback, The Three Wishes are determined to see the old bank added to their portfolio of 28 drinking establishments. They submitted a new application on December 8, and wrote to the council to allay any fears.
Charlotte Lambert, speaking on behalf of The Three Wishes, said: “We are responsible operators and have only ever had one noise complaint in the last 30 years, which was resolved immediately.
“It is our intention to offer live music once a week, but this will be limited to a single singer or a duo and the last 30 minutes will be wind-down music.
“To add extra comfort to local residents, we can mount our speakers on anti-vibration pads to limit sound travel. Please be assured that our style of operation is not a late-night bar with loud music. We are a family-friendly community pub group.”
Harrow Council is set to make a decision on February 2.
