Some concerns have been raised that noise will increase late into the evening with smokers outside the pub in a residential area.

But the planning application has already been recommended for approval, despite the area having a pub only a short walk away in either direction.

The Steadings is located around five minutes walk away at the top of Bennochy Road, while Charley’sis even closer on Dunearn Drive.
