You might think that the area doesn't need another kebab shop but sadly the old Sunrise Cafe at 95 Caledonian Road is turninginto Sky Fried Chicken and Kebab. (Declaration – i own a property a few doors away from here.) It isn't clear whether the new owners need planning permission for a change of use from a cafe to a takeaway restaurant.
Whatever the use class issue, the shop sign is wrong for a conservation area. 95 Cally Road is at the end of a relatively intact C19th terrace that remains as laid out when the Cally Road was driven North in the 1820s. The cheap and nasty signs are out of keeping. Cllr Convery is on the case with planning officers.
This site cafe was the scene of a nasty accident in 2006 when a large lorry embedded itself in the shop front – mercifully no one was hurt. You can see a remarkable picture on the Gazette site.
