Plan for new shisha lounge

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

A BUSI­NESS hop­ing to be­come the “go-to es­tab­lish­ment” for Shisha could be set to trans­form the ap­pear­ance of a run down area of Mid­dles­brough.

Plans have been sub­mit­ted for the cre­ation of a Shisha lounge and res­tau­rant on Simp­son Street, Linthorpe, and if ac­cepted, de­vel­op­ers feel the pro­posal could lead to fur­ther in­vest­ment into the area. Shisha is a type of to­bacco tra­di­tion­ally smoked through a wa­ter­pipe.

An ini­tial pre-ap­pli­ca­tion for the project was knocked back by Mid­dles­brough coun­cil which said the lo­ca­tion was “wholly un­ac­cept­able due to the use be­ing alien to the sur­round­ing in­dus­trial uses”

How­ever, the sub­se­quent ap­pli­ca­tion re­futes this by say­ing the area is mixe­duse and not wholly in­dus­trial. The site stands on an empty car stor­age unit.
