17/00974/FUL 3 The Boardwalk Northgate Change of use of the existing building comprising shops and hair salon (class A1) and cafe (class A3), to form 1 no. restaurant on ground floor (class A3), 4 no. 1 bed maisonettes and 1 no. 2 bed flat (class C3) including associated access.
Objection. We deplore the loss of retail and office premises in central Chichester and consider that the existing use should be maintained. The proliferation of roof-lights damages the ‘look’ of this building in a prominent position, and the internal alterations will hide the historic Victorian timber roof trusses. There is serious concern that the flats and restaurant proposed would overload the waste-water treatment works, as per the correspondence from Southern Water.
