Havering Planning round-up
- Credit: Archant
A round-up of last week’s Havering Council Regulatory Services committee meeting:
The decision over whether a restaurant’s smoking shelter should be refused planning permission was postponed after councillors agreed they needed to look at the site and how the view from neighbouring houses would be impacted.
South Hornchurch ward councillors Rebecca Bennett (Conservative) and Denis Breading (Labour) respectively spoke for and against the plan, for the shelter at the Kusadasi Taverna in Rainham Road, Rainham.
During the discussion, an officer admitted that the council have no record of planning permission ever having been granted for the building itself, and so couldn’t say what conditions were attached to the original plans.
An application to allow newspaper deliveries to take place at a new Tesco from 5-7am was deferred.
