In March 2016 DLP Planning secured planning permission for the change of use of a shop (Class A1) to use class A3 (restaurant/café) on Ecclesall Road, Sheffield.
Following a previous refusal on the site for a similar development, DLP worked proactively with the Council to address the reasons for refusal and devise a scheme that could be supported by Officers of the Council. The main issues to address centred around the protection of residential amenity of the surrounding residents.
DLP engaged in pre-application discussions with the Local Planning Authority, prepared a Planning Statement outlining the merits of the case, collated, submitted and managed the application through to determination.
Sheffield City Council granted the application under delegated powers, subject to conditions.
