Pro­pos­als for eatery amended

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

DE­VEL­OP­ERS be­hind a planned restau­rant over­look­ing the Howff ceme­tery have sub­mit­ted fresh de­sign plans for the con­tro­ver­sial eatery.

West One Prop­er­ties has amended pro­pos­als to turn 5 Bank Street into a new 60-seat restau­rant next to the his­toric site, af­ter a sec­ond plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion was ap­proved in Novem­ber.

Ini­tial plans were re­jected by coun­cil­lors in April last year, af­ter con­ser­va­tion groups dubbed the scheme an “act of civic van­dal­ism”.

The latest ap­pli­ca­tion seeks to in­stall new win­dows on the ground floor and a new stairwell to cre­ate more space for ta­bles.

Allan Mudie, from Brun­ton Ar­chi­tects, said: “It doesn’t change things too much.

“It’s what we’ve come back with af­ter the in­for­mal rec­om­men­da­tion from the plan­ning depart­ment.

“We’ve put t his new ap­pli­ca­tion in from what we were told by the plan­ning.

“Hope­fully, this will be the fi­nal stage of that.”
