Fish & Chips in Hayes Street

At a recent planning committee, the application at 38 Hayes Street for a change of use to a fish and chip shop was approved.

Cllr. Manning, as a member of the committee, and Cllr. Reddin spoke against the application. They cited a proliferation of take-away shops in the Hayes district, the proximity to the Hayes Conservation Area, potential parking problems (particularly in the evenings) and late night disturbance, along with the issues raised by the Hayes Village Association and individual residents. Your councillors also expressed concerns that, regardless, of the accaptibility of a fish and chip shop or good intentions of the applicant, the “A5” classification that was allowed could also allow a different form of take-away to open in future without further permission.

Unfortunately the motion to refuse the plans was defeated by 4 votes to 3.
