The Noisy Lobster is a well-known and deservedly popular attraction at Avon Beach. For some time there has been a proposal to add a first floor terrace with view of the beach and sea. According to The Echo, there have been twenty-one applications for this site in the last ten years.
There have also been over forty objections to this latest proposal. The main worry is that it would become more intrusive.
Cllr Lesley Dedman said:
‘The residents are very much worried about the new parts of the building … It has gone from being a small beach hut cafe to being a massive complex of buildings … Avon Beach is a lovely secluded beach and we very much want to keep it that way.’
The application can be seen here.
