D-day for Wool House brewery decision

Daily Echo: D-day for Wool House brewery decision D-day for Wool House brewery decision

PLANS to create Southampton’s first brew house in a historic city building will be decided next week.

The Dancing Man Brewery wants to convert the Wool House in Town Quay into a brew house and restaurant.

It would also house the city’s first tourist information centre since the one at the Civic Centre was closed by the city council in 2013.

The Grade I listed building used to house the city’s Maritime Museum, but that shut in 2012.

The brewery team’s plans, which feature an open-plan design for the historic building’s interior, are now set to go before the city council’s planning panel.

They have been recommended to approve the plans, which could result in 50 new jobs being created, at a meeting next Tuesday.

"D DAY", go on echo play the game. Like the council won't give the permission, compare this with the appalling buildings and flats popping up around the city that get permission easily.

There is already a Visitor Information Point at OCEANS on the High Street, ideally located and with former Council Tourist Information Centre staff there run by a private business doing great things for this city.
It's been there since February 2013.
Pop into Oceans and see what they have to offer. Its opposite the HSBC bank.

Should be retained as an arts venue - the city doesn't have enough of these. I think locally brewed beer is a great thing to be encouraged, but the Platform Tavern already sells this brewery's products. I think local communities need proper pubs independent from the PubCo property barons. Renting off bits of the city's heritage to good friends is a poor use of its resources.
