Southampton Town extends deadline for Bull's Head Inn impact statement

Sep 30, 2009 1:40 PM

The owner seeking to expand the historic Bull’s Head Inn in Bridgehampton has been given additional time to submit forms outlining the project’s impact on the surrounding environment and community.

The Southampton Town Planning Board, at a meeting on September 24, voted to extend the deadline for submission of a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the project proposed by Bill Campbell, the owner of the inn. Mr. Campbell is seeking to transform the inn into a 22-bedroom hotel and restaurant with a wellness center.

In January, Mr. Campbell submitted a preliminary impact statement for the inn, which is located along Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike.

Town Planner Jacqueline Sherman-Smith said Mr. Campbell made requests to the board for more time to complete the final impact statement because of the complexity of the project.

The project calls for the demolition of the inn’s rear wing and its replacement with a new kitchen, elevator, stairway and other amenities. Two structures along the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike will also be removed.

The plans call for the preservation of the original inn as much as is possible. But some portions, including a carriage house, will be moved to other areas on the property to make room for the new construction.

The inn was built in the 1840s in the style of Greek Revival architecture and was the home of Judge Abraham Rose. It was nearly razed in the 1960s to clear the way for a gas station before the town’s Zoning Board stepped in to block the proposal.

They should let him do it. There are also other plans in the works for other commercial properties very close by. This seems much more in character with BH and the building itself.
