Demolition of existing 4th floor mansard and rear 2nd floor extension,

alterations including the erection of a replacement 4th floor mansard and

2nd and 4th floor rear extension, new entrance in connection with dual

alternative use of part basement and part ground floor as a retail shop

(Class A1) or restaurant (Class A3), use of the upper floors as offices

(Class B1) and a residential flat (Class C3) at 4th floor level.

 

The presenting officer tabled the following changes to the decision letter:

 

Revised Condition 24:

 

You must apply to us for approval of a management plan which should include the number of covers and as a minimum should show how you will prevent customers who are leaving the building from causing nuisance for people in the area, including people who live in nearby buildings. You must not start the restaurant use until we have approved what you have sent us. You must then carry out the measures included in the management plan at all times that the restaurant is in use.

 

Additional Informative:

 

Under Part 3, Class V of Schedule 2 of the Town and County Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, the part basement and part ground floor can change between the retail (Class A1) and restaurant (Class A3) uses we have approved for 10 years without further planning permission. However, the actual use 10 years after the date of the planning permission will become the authorised use, so you will then need to apply for permission for any further change.

 

RESOLVED:

 

That conditional permission, as amended, be granted subject to:

 

1)    Condition 21 being amended to read “You must not operate a delivery service, or permit such a service to operate, from the restaurant premises.”; and

 

2)    Condition 24 being amended to include staff leaving the premises to smoke.
