New use for R.E.Porter shop

Acting on behalf of the freehold owner, Goadsby Planning & Environment has obtained planning permission for the change of use of the former R.E. Porter jewellers shop to a restaurant.

Following the retirement of the family business earlier this year, the consent now allows the ground floor of the building to be converted to a bijou restaurant with outside seating area. The approval retains the elegant and distinctive façade of the building.
