The Rustington Pub is to be converted into a restaurant and hotel

A PUB can be converted into a hotel and restaurant after obtaining planning permission.

The bid to expand the Windmill Inn in Mill Lane, Rustington has been approved subject to conditions.

There has been an inn on the site since 1839. Now the venue is set to be converted into a 20-room restaurant and hotel.

An indoor pool and spa treatment room are also planned.

A total of 27 parking spaces as well as landscaping and green roofs are planned.

Most of the expansion will be to the rear and side of the building, with some of the existing buildings earmarked for demolition.

The original pub building is to be preserved.

Applicants said the hotel will help make the business profitable and could create jobs for three additional full-time employees.

In a report to the Adur County Council Planning Committee, council officials acknowledged that “it can be difficult to turn a profit” when running a standalone pub.

They said the plans would be in line with tourism and employment policies as the council is currently trying to attract more visitors to the district.

However, there were at least 19 objections over parking, noise and view concerns.

There was also a letter of support stating that the expansion would improve the building.

One objector said the number of parking spaces was just enough for the hotel’s needs.

He expressed concern that parking could overflow onto already busy surrounding streets.

Highway officials said parking was ample, adding that the venue was close to public transportation.

Planning officials concluded that the extension would not be “unduly prominent or intrusive” and would not be overwhelming for nearby properties. The Rustington Pub is to be converted into a restaurant and hotel
