Takeaway plan is turned down
PLANS for a new takeaway have been thrown out after objections from neighbours.
Ijaz Javid, of Stoke, had applied to Stoke-on-Trent City Council to open the business on the ground floor of a terrace house in Heron Cross.

Lisa Vickers, of Duke Street, who wrote a letter of objection, welcomed the decision.

She said: "The premises would have become a gathering point for local youths. I already experience difficulty parking and staff at the proposed business, plus customers would have compounded the already irritating situation."
The decision notice states: "The proposed use of the premises as a hot food takeaway, by reason of increased noise, smells, and general disturbance, would adversely affect the amenity of nearby residents."
