Punch Taverns, owner of Ye Olde George pub, has submitted plans to build four apartments on its existing car park. The pub operator says the George’s current beer garden and car park combined are more space than it needs. The existing beer garden, at 645 square metres, is “surplus to user requirement” and it wants to make more efficient use of its site through the re-location of a customer car park to the east, on land currently used as the beer garden. A new, smaller, beer garden would be created closer to the rear of the pub.
