A Threshfield pub has won its fight to expand.

Lakeland Leisure Estate – owners of the Gamekeepers Inn – lodged an appeal after the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority refused plans to extend the function room at the Long Ashes pub and erect an accommodation block with six letting bedrooms.

Now planning inspector Anthony Lyman has upheld its appeal, saying the proposal would be less dominant and of a higher quality design than an earlier approved scheme.

The planning committee had feared that the size, mass scale, form, design and materials would produce a building that would dominate the original building and harm its character.

In a report to Tuesday’s committee meeting, Richard Graham, head of development management, noted it was a disappointing decision.
