LBL planning have refused permission to turn 59 Sydenham Road – the former curtain shop at the corner of Sydenham and Queensthorpe Roads – into a Money Shop.
The refusal is on the grounds that “The proposed change of use to Financial and Professional Services (Use Class A2) would result in the loss of retail floorspace within a designated core shopping frontage, detracting from the range of retail services available within the defined district centre, which would have an adverse impact upon the vitality and viability of the area, contrary to Policy STC 4 Major and District Centres – Core Shopping Areas in the adopted Unitary Development Plan (July 2004).”
