Beeston offices to become restaurant and flats

A vacant office and apartment building in Beeston will be transformed into a restaurant with six studio flats above it.

The building is in Stoney Street, at the junction with High Road, in the centre of the town.

Andre Wilkins, the applicant, has been given permission to transform the building and extend it at the rear and on the second floor.

On the ground floor will be a restaurant or café space, while six flats will be created on the first and second floors.

Planning documents say: “The planning application has been prepared on the basis of the pre-application advice received and having regard to national and local policy.

“Town centre uses are now proposed on the ground floor, which reflects the site’s town centre location and position in the primary shopping frontage.

“The upper floors are proposed to contain 6 studios and will function as a HMO (House of Multiple Occupation), with common areas to the rear of the property.

“The proposed extension at second floor level has been designed to be in keeping with the architectural style of the area and serves to create a more prominent corner building on this key node between High Road and Stoney Street.”

The applicant says he will not be providing any Section 106 financial contributions towards affordable housing, infrastructure, open space or jobs.

This is because it is under the threshold of 10 dwellings or 1,000 square metres of commercial floorspace as set out in Broxtowe Borough Council’s policies.

Documents add the restaurant must not be used except between 7.30am and 11pm every day of the week without prior agreement from the council.

The applicant now has three years to commence the work.
