Please allow the Shepherds hut at Waterfront Tea Room in Bourton on the Water to remain. It provides a valuable service to tourists and local people. Planning permission should be granted (if it is indeed needed). It does not detract from the listed building but enhances the setting.
Why is this important?
It is a valuable business asset and I have used it to trade from selling ice creams, drinks and in the winter months waffles and crepes also since 2018. During the current pandemic it is providing my sole income. The Tea Room is closed due to logistical issues whereby it is not possible to trade safely due to government restrictions. If I am forced to remove the hut I will be forced out of business. It is simple as that!
Thank you for signing.
