Following an earlier rejection of a takeaway at 47 Croydon Road (the former butchers), an unrelated planning application was submitted for no. 41. While ostensibly for a coffee lounge/café, the opening hours (to 11pm), bar-style layout and alcohol licence application have raised serious concerns among residents.
We have made representations to the Council and currently both the planning application and licence hearing have been deferred.
UPDATE (12/10): The planning application, now amended to be solely for a restaurant-type usage, is coming before the Plans sub-committee this Thursday (15th).
