The application form says existing use is A5- this is incorrect as the current use class of the unit is A3 approved in 1994 from what I can tell from records for this property on the portal. This is also evident in the fact there is eat-in seating in the chippy. The proposal for a change to A5 removes this completely, representing a loss to the streetscene and vibrancy of the parade (as covered within DMLP policy DM 18).
The back yard is being taken up almost entirely by proposed chiller store - causing this amenity and unit flexibility to be lost forever.
The over concentration of A5 use hot food takeaways that this proposal brings is contrary to Lewisham DMLP policy DM 18.
This application for a new A5 takeaway would be located well-within 400m of a junior school, contrary to national initiatives and Lewisham DMLP policy DM 18.
