17/01332/FUL. The Foundry, 1 Southgate, Chichester. To extend outdoor seating and create outside bar.
The Executive Committee comment that there should be no external speakers for music and that the hours of use be limited to 11 at night. We also point out that the situation on the external signage to the premises has not been regularised.
Therefore the Committee objects to this application and asks that the Council refuses permission.
16/04017/FUL The Foundry, 1 Southgate. A permanent timber structure external bar (licensed to sell alcohol) and change of use of part of the car park, making it part of the usable drinking area
Object. There is very likely to be disturbance to neighbours, including noise and tobacco smoke. We are also still waiting for details of revised signage for the property.
16/03916/ADV;The Chantry 27 – 28 Southgate; 1 no. illuminated fascia sign, 2 no. menu signs, 1 no. non-illuminated projection sign and 2 no. written logo signs. 6 no. flood lights and 2 no. lanterns.
Objection. The hanging sign is not necessary and the roundel signs are superfluous. The illumination is inappropriate for the C.A. and a street number should be provided for public amenity and safety.
16/03916/ADV. The Chantry, 27-28 Southgate, Chichester. 1 illuminated fascia sign, 2 menu signs, 1 non-illuminated projecting sign, 2 written logo signs, 6 floodlights, 2 lanterns.
The Executive Committee considers that this retrospective proposal application is unacceptable because it contravenes the CDC guidance notes on “Shopfronts in the Conservation Area”. This is particularly with regard to the projecting sign, illumination of the fascia sign, the 2 entrance lanterns and the large circular wall painted logos prominent on the street and southern alley upper facades (which are larger and skewed as executed). We are concerned that this and other businesses flout the required application and approval process and though the Chantry proposal is an improvement on the Slug and Lettuce (which we objected to), such transgressions should be firmly dealt with.
The Committee therefore objects to this application and seeks that the Council refuses permission.
Applications: 16/00513/ADV and 16/00514/LBC
Proposals: 2 illuminated hanging signs, 3 illuminated wall signs, 2 illuminated menu boxes and external redecoration and new lamps.
