AN INTERACTIVE football game was proposed at a Premier League football club’s branded restaurant.
Approval for the housing, with a canopy to reduce glare on to the screen, was sought by Liverpool FC at its Boot Room restaurant at The Coliseum, Ellesmere Port.
The 240-cover restaurant occupies a vacant day nursery site which had previously been unused for a number of years.
Planning officers at Cheshire West and Chester Council were told the game would be installed in an outside area at the restaurant, which includes a small pitch.
They believed any noise and disturbance should be taken into account.
As the nearest residential properties would be 90 metres away, they felt the game would not be detrimental to the amenity of those neighbours.
Four adjoining occupiers on the Coliseum were consulted and no representations were received.
There were no objections from environmental protection specialists at the borough council subject to conditions.
Recommending the application be approved, planners believed the interactive football area would be acceptable.
Permission was agreed.
