Clayton takeaway boss appeals against Bradford Council closing time decision

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Clayton takeaway boss appeals against Bradford Council closing time decision Clayton takeaway boss appeals against Bradford Council closing time decision

The owner of a takeaway in Clayton, Bradford, is appealing against a decision that prevents it from being open until 11.45pm rather its current 11pm.

Mr S Mahmood had applied to lift a condition on The Spice Ranch in Park Lane in a bid to open until 11.45pm.

The 11pm time was imposed in 2008, when Mr Mahmood was granted permission to turn the former Co-op building into a takeaway on appeal.

Bradford Council has refused his request to alter the closing time.

His appeal states: “There is a lack of evidence that the proposals would give rise to noise, vehicular activity and disturbance.”

BMDC has no idea of business it seems and is hell bent on the destruction of the commerce of the region.
In the current economic climate you'd of thought a little brain matter would of understood the need to make money while you can even if that means a slight switch in the daily clock for such a short period of time.

Would be intersting to know what the appeal grounds were of the previous appeal, by chance that if granted he would close at 11pm??

The onus should be on providing evidence that it wont.

No doubt he will be able to get a bent councillor on board to assist with the application. He should contact the owner of the Tradex bazaar and see how he managed it for years with no planning permission.

Therefore no need for him to open later, because those are the signs that people will be around, therefore if there is no evidence that people will be around he doesn't need to open later does he?

All time restricted planning permission should be adhered to and enforced by the authorities. Alas Bradford being Bradford it is not always.

amazing how there could be restrictions on minor time differences. more surprising in a city that has no jobs and is populated with bums.

Well done council. If you haven't had your tea by eleven then it's your own fault and local residents should not be inconvenienced.
