The borough council has decided not take any action against Wetherspoon over the maintenance of its Welwyn Garden City site.

Liberal Democrat councillor Rachel Basch had criticised the pub chain over its Parkway premises, claiming it had been allowed to deteriorate into an “eyesore” since being purchased in 2014.

However, following borough council inspections, a spokeswoman said: “Officers visited the site and found that the condition does not warrant an untidy land notice at this time.”

Wetherspoon has had two applications to turn the site into a boozer unanimously rejected by members, but a spokesman for the pub chain has repeatedly claimed it is still interested in the premises.
