Standard Quay restaurant appeal dismissed

The appeal against refusal of planning permission for a restaurant in Building 1 (the large black building) at Standard Quay has been dismissed, primarily on the grounds that “harm would be caused to the character of the listed building and the conservation area” and “the loss of opportunity for continue maritime use”.

However, Swale Borough Council is criticised on the basis that it did not provide sufficient evidence for three of the four reasons given for its original refusal of the planning application (effect on vitality and viability of the town centre, maritime history and related maritime activities, and highway safety), and thus the applicant is entitled to claim partial costs.
