Marston’s pick outskirts of Fenland town for their latest roadside inn

ONE of Britain’s biggest pub chains is about to add number 1665 to its estate if permission for a new roadside inn on the outskirts of March is approved.

Marston’s has applied to build the pub alongside the A141 Wisbech Road at Westry near the turning to the March Trading Centre.

The company says the site they have chosen, which has previously been given consent for three retail units, is an area “predominantly used for commercial purposes”.

And they are hopeful, too, that once their new Cambridgeshire pub is up and running it will help bring forward other land in the area to ensure “comprehensive development of the wider site”.

The Staffordshire based company says the site will fit in well with existing and proposed uses of the area and says the pub will be well situated to serve local workers, residents, visitors to the trading park and passing trade.

A junction off the A141 will serve the new pub and pedestrians will be able to gain access from a new estate road as well as a footpath to Hostmoor Avenue.

Marston’s has told Fenland planners, who will consider their proposals that the application has come about after a “great deal of time and considered thought”.
