MP Kerry McCarthy joins opposition to new Brislington pub
KERRY McCarthy MP has backed Brislington residents in their opposition to plans to open a Hungry Horse pub near Bath Road.
The application on behalf of the Hungry Horse Company proposes to build a pub and restaurant in a residential part of Brislington which would have a late entertainment licence. It has generated significant opposition from Brislington residents.
Ms McCarthy, pictured, has described the application as "inappropriate" and has called for Bristol City Council planning officers to consider the consequences it would have on the community.
Local residents say they are troubled the applicants have applied for a late night entertainment licence, which would allow the proposed public house to operate between 10am and midnight on a daily basis.

Around 30 objections have been received from residents so far.
After writing to the city council planning officers, Ms McCarthy said: "Let's be clear, Brislington does not need a late-night entertainment venue that entices customers with cheap alcoholic drinks. This is a largely residential area, which is home to a lot of families with young kids; the local community does not want to be disturbed by late night drinkers.
"The application to build a Hungry Horse is unwelcome and inappropriate. A 'family friendly' venue would have no need for a late entertainment licence and residents feel strongly late night drinking should not be encouraged in this part of the city."
