Whitbread has overcome local objections to win planning permission for a new Brewers Fayre pub in the West Midlands.

The planning inspectorate has given the thumbs-up for the development, which will be built from scratch in the village of Wychbold, near Droitwich.

Whitbread's planning application to bring its family pub and restaurant brand to the village was originally turned down by Wychavon District Council, but the decision has been overturned on appeal.

Parish and district councillors opposed the plan amid fears that it would change the character of the village and increase traffic.

Wychavon's head of planning, Gill Collin, said: "We are very disappointed at the inspectorate's decision. The inspector did not agree with the local planning authority that the development of this family pub would have a negative visual impact on the area, nor that there would be traffic implications on an already busy road."

A Whitbread spokesman said: "The new Brewers Fayre will provide jobs and great facilities for the people of Wychbold and Droitwich. We hope to commence work later this year."
