Plans to extend a popular Uddingston hotel have been approved despite objections from neighbouring residents.

Lisini Pub Company intends to create more space for eating and drinking at Angels in Main Street and add two bedrooms.

Councillors heard last week that six objections had been received from people living nearby. They complained that extending the hotel would affect their privacy and reduce daylight at their homes. They also had concerns that more customers would mean increased traffic and noise.

However, planners dismissed their worries. On privacy, they said extension of the restaurant at the front of the hotel might even be an improvement on the current situation as it would remove part of the beer garden.

The planners also said the hotel’s location means it is a noisy area and they don’t think an extension would add greatly to this.
