Solihull pub plans to put up five-metre tepee near listed building

Editorial Correspondent 9th Jul, 2019 Updated: 9th Jul, 2019

A five-metre tepee could be put up near a Grade II listed building in a Solihull pub garden.

The owners of The Farm pub, on Farmhouse Way, Monkspath, have applied for planning consent to Solihull Council to put up the structure.

The pub’s site includes a 16th century building, the former farmhouse, which has been listed since 1949.

A statement on behalf of the owners from project managers ASK reads: “The proposed scheme is sympathetic to both the site, the building closest to the tepee (The Barn Public House) and the original listed building itself (The Farm).

“The tepee is in no way connected to or visible from the original listed building ensuring that the historic value of the listed building is preserved.

“All proposed works will be constructed to high standards and in keeping with the general design of the site.

“The proposal offers continued economic viability to the two public houses by enhancing the customer experience.

“This will in turn ensure that the historic importance of The Farm is preserved.”

The proposed works also involve laying a new patio.

The pub is managed by Lovely Pubs which operates a small number of licensed gastro public houses in and around Birmingham and Warwickshire.

A timescale has not yet been set for a planning decision and any public consultation.
