Take­away pro­posal re­jected

Sunday Sun - - News -

PLANS to open a new hot food take­away in Wash­ing­ton have been re­fused over noise and park­ing fears.

In Septem­ber, a ‘change of use’ ap­pli­ca­tion was lodged for 3-4 He­worth Road – a shop space va­cant since Fe­bru­ary.

Ap­pli­cants aimed to trans­form the for­mer boiler shop into a take­away with open­ing hours of 10am to mid­night, Mon­day to Satur­day and noon to 11pm on Sun­day and Bank Hol­i­days.

Dur­ing con­sul­ta­tion, coun­cil of­fi­cers called for open­ing hours to be re­duced to 10pm on Sun­days and ex­pressed fears that day­time open­ing hours could im­pact other busi­nesses and lead to a spike in on-street park­ing.

Coun­cil plan­ners made the fi­nal de­ci­sion to refuse the take­away plans on Wed­nes­day, November 7.
