3 The Boardwalk, Northgate

17/00974/FUL, 3, The Boardwalk, Northgate, Chichester. Change of use from A1 retail to A3 restaurant at ground floor and to C3, 4 no 1-bed maisonettes and 1 no 2-bed flat with associated access.

 The Executive Committee considers that this proposal is unacceptable. The proposed large restaurant with the loss of the present retail space will create an evening noise nuisance for adjoining residential properties in Franklin Place including the associated deliveries and food waste disposal.  The residential properties created are, it is felt, sub-standard with limited outlook & daylighting and no car parking provision. Also it is understood that there exists an interesting original vaulted upper floor space with impressive roof trusses which will be subsumed in the creation of the flats.

Therefore we object to this application and ask the Council to refuse permission
