This is brilliant news for the community coming hard on the heels of SHDC’s favourable delaying ruling on the application for demolition (see elsewhere on this site).
Valerie Scott, Chair of the Neighbourhood Planning Group writes – ‘You will all be delighted to hear that the appeal on the Bay View Café has been dismissed. I attach a copy of the decision. It is a very thorough decision letter picking up many comments made by the local residents either in writing prior to the hearing and or as other matters raised at the hearing itself. The fact that so many of you attended the hearing will have made it very clear how important these buildings are to the local community both as a community asset and a local heritage asset so many thanks to all those who objected to the application or attended the hearing.’
