Heading: Town Council at work (The White Hart)



The Surveyor subnmitted plans which had been deposited by Messrs. Allsopp's for alterations to the White Hart Inn, Long Causeway.  It was proposed, he said, to make a long bar, similar to that proposed on the opposite side of the street at the Salmon and Compasses.  The dwelling-house would be on the first floor.  The bar would encroach somewhat on the present passage.

Mr. Foote: How wide is the passage now.

The Surveyor: Seven feet, six inches.  They propose to make it about four feet.  When altereed, the premises would be very much better than they are at present.  The stables at the back would be pulled down, and a smoke room erected at the end of the long bar.

The Mayor: Does the alteration interfere with the open space at the back?

The Surveyor: The stables there are substituted by another building.

Mr. Winfrey: Are there any side on back doors.

The Surveyor: Side doors leading into the bar; no back doors.

Mr. Beeby: Is the passage common to any other premises.

The Surveyor: No sir.

The Mayor: What about the sanitary arrangements.

The Surveyor: They are improved from what they are at present.

Mr. Whitsed: I propose we pass the plans.

The Surveyor: The building projects considerably in front of an adjoining house; it is a question whether a street improvement could be effected there.

The Mayor: I do not think we could do that.

The plans were then passed unanimously.
