The application for the new micropub at 352 High Street in Rochester, between the Northern Seamen and the Flippin Frog, has surprisingly been approved. Despite numerous objections from local residents, and a recommendation from the Planning Office for refusal, Medway Councillors on the planning committee met and approved the proposal. There are a few conditions, such as deliveries must be at the front and restrictions on using the rear of the property, however nothing that will deter the two partners in the business.
