Mendip District Council have had a meeting to discuss plans to open a Wetherspoons pub next to Kudos nightclub on Priory Road in Wells.

17 Councillors turned up for the meeting and voted 15 to 2.

15 Councillors did not want Wetherspoons pub to open on Priory Road in Wells and only 2 Councillors were in favour of a Wetherspoons pub opening on Priory Road. 

Plans to open a Wetherspoons pub on Priory Road have been rejected.

Mendip District Council have said in the past that if a Wetherspoons pub did open on Priory Road in Wells then it would seriously affect the Princes Road development in Wells (Mendip District Council keep talking about the Princes Road development but nothing ever happens).

    All this talk of the Princes Rd development but wasn't that rejected a few years ago too? About time somebody came up with some realistic but innovative plans for that whole area, IE. something for the benefit of the city as a whole rather than for obvious (but usually hidden) selfish gains...

    Wouldn't that site be better for the proposed EMI club?

    'Spoons certainly doesn't appeal to me!
