Yet another planning application has been made for yet another conversion of A1 use to A5 use - this time at 566 Mile End Road. See PA/10/01611. The planning documents are not yet up on the Council's planning database but when they are we shall be going over for both them and the Council's planning policy in some details
The Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 states use classes are as follows
- Class A1 Shops: Shops, retail warehouses, sandwich bars, hairdressers, undertakers, travel and ticket agencies, post offices, dry cleaners, showrooms, domestic hire shops, funeral directors, internet cafés etc.
- Class A5. Hot food takeaways Use for the sale of hot food for consumption off the premises
Let us know what you think as we shall definitely be commenting on this application as well as making representations to the Council about this unplanned and unwanted explosion in hot food takeaway businesses.
We'll also be raising this issue with Mile End East Ward Councillor Rachael Saunders who has Special Responsibility: 'Lead Member - Health and Wellbeing' in the Cabinet.
We'll be asking how exactly the vast number of hot food take-aways around the Mile End Road/ Burdett Road junction contribute to the health and wellbeing of the local community in Mile End.
