Wetherspoon is "still committed" to open a pub in Kenilworth despite withdrawing planning application
The company announced in July that it was planning to open a new branch at 18-24 The Square and is set to invest £2 million on the vacant site previously occupied by Poundland.
Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon has said: "There is a discrepancy on the plans and our planning consultant's advice was to resubmit rather than amend the application.
"We are still committed to opening a pub in Kenilworth."
Kenilworth Town Council had objected to the plans despite councillors agreeing that converting the empty unit into a pub would benefit the town centre.
The pub would occupy all of the ground and first floor of the building, comprising 5,500 sq ft on each.
Wetherspoon has said that, if opened, the pub would create 60 jobs.
Wetherspoon’s purchase of the site was overseen by Leamington-based property consultants Wareing & Company.
“It is great to see a major national name like Wetherspoon investing in the heart of Kenilworth by purchasing this building."
