The owner of a Bildeston country house wedding venue has applied for permission to lift planning restrictions on her business.
Hazel Gadsden, who owns Christmas Hall, in Market Place, said the venue is licenced for 26 guests, but she would like to increase it to 30. She also wants to remove conditions restricting the number of private functions held per year.
She said: “We are only a small wedding venue and, to attract the niche market that we are restricted to, we want the flexibility to book a wedding whenever there is an opportunity.
“We have held weddings for almost three years without any complaint.”
