A PUB in Oswestry is preparing for a potential spring and summer reopening with a pavement permit application.

The Wilfred Owen, in Willow Street, is a JD Wetherspoon pub and has applied to Shropshire Council for two outdoor seating areas.

The areas will be either side of the front door of the premises, each measuring 3.33m by 1.47m containing tables and chairs enclosed with barriers.

Consultation on the application is open until Wednesday, March 10 and anyone wishing to comment can do so by contacting Shropshire Council's licensing team at licensing@shropshire.gov.uk or by calling 0345 678 9026.
