PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A decision on the future of a pub in Cambridge has been deferred after councillors asked for more information about fire safety. An application to redevelop The Emperor in Hills Road was due to be debated by councillors at a Cambridge City Council Planning Committee meeting earlier this week (Wednesday, August 3). Plans submitted by MPM Properties proposed to keep the front of the building, but to demolish and rebuild the rest to create new office space, alongside the pub. In planning documents submitted as part of the application it said: “Within the new development a larger and more usable pub space will be provided over two floors (basement and ground floor) with the new business use provided to the rear and on the upper floors. “Discussions have taken place with the existing pub tenant regarding the new pub space to be provided at the site and they have influenced the design and layout of the space and it meets with their requirements.” Read more: Cambridge Travis Perkins site will become 70 build to rent flats The application had been recommended for approval by city council planning officers. In a report prepared for the committee it said: “In principle, the introduction of office use to the rear of the site and on the upper floors of the building is acceptable. The proposed redevelopment of the public house would not adversely impact the future viability of The Emperor. “The proposal’s design, layout and scale is compatible with its surroundings and although minor harm is identified to the conservation area through loss of rear parts of the existing building, any harm is outweighed by the public benefits of the scheme.

. The group said the planned basement and dining area would be smaller, and highlighted that there would be no pub garden, which it said due to city pubs having limited outdoor space should be avoided. The fact that the plans did not offer licensee accommodation was also raised by the group, which said it would make the pub a “less attractive” business option. Before the application was discussed at the planning committee meeting, Councillor Dave Baigent asked for it to be deferred so that a fire officer report on the plans could be prepared. He said: “There is no fire officer’s report for us to consider, there is an underground basement which has got a restaurant and kitchen and a spare room in. There is only a single exit from that ground floor up a staircase and I think we need to have a fire service opinion on this before we consider it.” When Cllr Baigent’s proposal to defer the application was put to a vote a majority of the committee councillors voted in favour. The application is expected to return to the committee at a future meeting.
