Restau­rant can open longer

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A Perthshire restau­rant has had its hours ex­tended to al­low mem­bers of the pub­lic to view an his­toric win­dow.

Wil­lie Lit­tle, who runs Lit­tle’s Restau­rant in the for­mer River­side Methodist Church in Rat­tray, ap­plied to Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil to have its hours ex­tended.

The pro­pos­als sub­mit­ted to coun­cil plan­ning bosses were for the for­mer church to be open from 8am un­til 12.30am each day, and up to 1.30am on spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

It is hoped this will al­low more peo­ple to come in and view the stained glass win­dow, which is ded­i­cated to the work of the Labour Corps dur­ing World War I (1914-1918).

In the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion, Mr Lit­tle said it was for“mod­i­fi­ca­tion of con­di­tion five of plan­ning per­mis­sion, change of pro­posed hours of oper­a­tion for restau­rant and an­cil­lary cock­tail bar to 8am to 12.30am Mon­day to Sun­day, hours to be ex­tended to 1.30am on spe­cial oc­ca­sions such as Christ­mas and New Year”.

Although the build­ing would be open later, no al­co­hol will be served past 11pm.

The rea­son­ing listed on the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion was“pub­lic ac­cess is re­quired to view stained glass memo­rial win­dow as a con­di­tion of Mr Lit­tle’s ti­tle deeds”.

The change to open­ing hours was passed by plan­ning bosses at the lo­cal au­thor­ity.
