Clarification on Increase in restaurant size

The report omitted that the restaurant is to be increased in size by 12.5m (following demolition of existing restaurant floorspace)

Clarification to point 8.6 Access (page 367

Level access is proposed from the street to the restaurant, as a result of the shopfront alterations. The report incorrectly stated that access is to remain as existing.

Addition of Condition 23

You must use the commercial floor space at part ground/ part basement for retail/ offices or a medical/health facility (as defined under Class Ea, c, e, g) only. You must not use it for any other purpose, including any within Class E of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 2020 (or any equivalent class in any order that may replace it).

Reason:

We cannot grant planning permission for unrestricted Class E use because it would harm the amenity of neighbouring occupiers and would not meet Policies 7, 14 and 33 of the City Plan 2019 - 2040 (April 2021). (R05JA)
