Planning permission was granted in 2009 for the use of the first and second floors as a restaurant and staff accommodation and earlier in 2011 for the use of the first floor flat roof area as garden terrace. A more recent application sought to implement the use granted under the previous applications and to include the external area as part of the restaurant bar. The two earlier consents remain valid but this additional proposal was considered at a Plans Sub-Committee on 24th November 2011 and refused on grounds that the proposed addition of a bar / drinking establishment element would result in an undesirable and over-intensive use of the site detrimental to the amenities of nearby residents.
