Stanningley: Restaurant proposals rejected by council

24 September 2019

Plans to transform an empty shop into a restaurant/cafe in a residential street in Stanningley have been refused by Leeds City Council.

Farshad Musavi wanted to open his restaurant/cafe in Half Mile Lane.

The business would have created two full time and two part time jobs and have opened from 7am-11pm daily.

But council planning officers said the end terrace property was located in a predominantly residential area.

The property was previously a back-to-back house, although the current use is retail at ground floor with residential accommodation above. The premises is currently vacant.

In refusing permission, a planning officer said there was no allocated parking:

“The proposal is likely to increase the number of vehicles parking on-street in an area where residents have to rely on on-street parking, this raises road safety concerns.”

The report also pointed to noise issues and labelled the decking area ‘incongruous’.

Bosses at the restaurant wanted to build two single storey rear extensions, extend an existing roof terrace with stair access and build a new single storey entrance lobby to front.

A planning officer’s report refusing permission says the proposal is acceptable in terms of the design and appearance, but points to concerns over parking at the site and adds:

“The Local Planning Authority considers that this part retrospective application for an enlarged external first-floor drinking terrace by reason of its location, function, hours of use and noise generated by patrons, would lead to increased levels of unacceptable noise and disturbance in close proximity to residential properties, causing significant detriment to the amenity of these occupants.”
