Proposals to turn Tenby’s former Clarice Toy Shop into a restaurant and hotel have been given the thumbs up by town councillors.

The full and listed building plans for the scheme at 3 and 4 Upper Frog Street have been submitted to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (PCNPA) for consideration, by applicant Leighton Jones, who was behind the transformation of the former British Legion Club on Lower Frog Street, which became eatery the Billycan, which also offers accommodation upstairs.

Members of Tenby town council had previously called for a site meeting to discuss the alterations and extensions associated with the proposed change of use of the premises to a restaurant and hotel, after raising concerns about the scale and massing of the development.

Councillors also pointed to potential adverse effect on neighbouring properties and the impact on the proposal on the historic walls in this location.

At their remote meeting on Tuesday night, councillors recommended approval of the scheme, thanking members of PCNPA for arranging a site meeting which answered many of the questions they had in relation to the scale and massing of this development and the impact of the proposal on the town walls.

“Members feel they can support this application on the proviso that due consideration is given to the very genuine concerns of neighbours in relation to the potential effect of the development on their amenity,” said the town clerk.
