There were no objections.

Planning officer Ashleigh Rossiter, delegating approval, reported: “The extension will provide a larger preparation space to the existing café on site to enable the further expansion and improvement of the existing business.

"The site is located outside of a small village as classified in the Local Plan however it is a modest extension to an existing rural business and is proportionate to the existing development that does not significantly impact the landscape.”

Last month, new Greek dining venture Mykonos at the Drift started trading.
