The planning department have confirmed that the new – and now operational – Buongiorno cafe and restaurant on Acomb Wood Drive has the necessary planning permission. The was confusion in November when a “change of use” planning application was withdrawn.
It turns out that the Council advised the owner that a “change of use” planning permission was not necessary as the existing take away permission also covered the use of the premises as a cafe.
“Change of use” would only be required if there were proposed alterations to the shop front, display of advertisements, or the installation of any external flues.
We wish the new business every success.
