You may recall the unit at 2 York Way turned into a kebab shop and applied for an open shop front, late night trading (after 23:00) and an illuminated facia sign. This was application was rejected, but then they appealled the Council’s decision (Click for earlier story).
They are tenants of Regent Quarter but unfortunately despite our concern that this was not a suitable business for a regeneration development, our freeholder’s managing agents offered no support. However, many were not happy about this, so a number of local residents tackled the problem via the council route and the unit’s planning application was refused. Download 2B York Way Appeal Decision
The leaseholders appealed and I can confirm that the appeal was also rejected. Please see attached if you would like to see the detail of the appeal rejection!
Thanks to Paul Convery – our local councillor – for his continued support.
This is another example of residents working together to make their neighbourhood confirm to their wishes! It can be done!
