Application Approved (Lewisham): Can a Mini-Cab Office Turn into a Takeaway?

We are very excited to add another success to our record! MZA Planning helped a client in Lewisham secure planning permission for a change of use from a mini-cab office (sui generis) to a takeaway (A5).

Our team put together a strategy which involved a detailed planning statement, a cover letter and the preparation of drawings. The statement argued that the proposed restaurant use is an appropriate town centre use that will contribute positively to the vitality of the shopping area. Additionally, it stated that the design and operating hours of the restaurant will also ensure that the restaurant use does not have an adverse impact on the residential amenity of neighbouring properties. This was enough for the Council to approve the application, making us and our client very happy with the result!
