Haweli of St Margarets, an Indian takeaway restaurant at 122 St Margarets Road has applied for planning approval to replace their existing timber shop front with a matte black aluminium one.

To review and comment on the application, you can look on the council website here.

Some of the concerns raised by local residents already have been:

  • An aluminium shopfront is entirely out of character and not suitable in a conservation area where wooden shop fronts should be retained.
  • If replacement is necessary, which is unlikely, the opportunity to put in something which maintains or improves the conservation area should be used.
