Compromise agreed over club exterior

The owner of a Belfast club has said he has come to an agreement with DOE planners after a dispute over its facade.

It emerged last week that a retrospective planning application for awnings and signage at the AM:PM Cabaret Supper Club on Upper Arthur Street near City Hall was recommended for rejection by the Department of Environment.The owner, Eamon McCusker faced a £2,500 fine if he did not comply with the enforcement.The club claimed that the DOE said the awnings "detract visual amenity and the wider conservation area and present visual clutter which is not acceptable".However thousands of people have signed an online petition in support of the business.Following a meeting with the planners on Monday, a statement from AM:PM confirmed that they had come to a compromise.The statement said that over the coming months they would publish visuals of the new agreed exterior and signage.CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) CHAR(13) + CHAR(10)A DOE spokesperson said: "The Department held a constructive meeting with Mr McCusker and his agent on 19th May and we continue to work with him to resolve the issue."
