Fuddy Duck Brewery given permission for pop up bar and food area at Wyberton Fen home, near Boston

A brewery has been given the thumbs up to operate a pop-up bar and food area on its site.

The Fuddy Duck Brewery was granted retrospective planning permission to make the changes at its Wyberton Fen location.

“Planning permission is sought to change the use of the site to form an outdoor area that incorporates a pop up bar and three 20ft shipping containers (retrospective),” the Boston Borough Council planning officer’s report stated.

“One unit will sell hot and cold food, one will be used for storage and one will be added at a later date.”

Wyberton Parish Council questioned the lack of toilet facilities in the plans while Lincolnshire County Council raised a concern about parking at the site, located on Enterprise Way.

“The highway authority are of concern with the loss of the four car parking spaces for use as an outdoor seating area, that are intended for the use of visitors and/or staff,” the LCC response explained.

“This detracts from there intended purpose to facilitate adequate parking provision for all the units.

“It also means that those who wish to park within this location at times of business hours, would find that they are unable to do so, which would thereby require drivers to park on the public highway, further away from the establishment they wish to visit, which is considered to be unreasonable and would result in an unacceptable impact upon highway safety.”

However, one representation was received from a member of the public, who labelled the plans a ‘refreshing idea’.

They also appreciated that the bar ‘provides a recreational use that can be walked to’ and ‘benefits local people’.

BBC granted the request planning permission with the conditions that the business only operates between the hours of 8am and 11pm, Tuesday to Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sundays, and that the pop up only operates in conjunction with the main bar at the brewery, sited at unit 7 on Enterprise Way, to allow for toilet provisions.

Planners added that ‘at no time shall the use hereby approved obstruct the car parking spaces that serve the industrial units on Enterprise Way.
