Restaurant expansion plans approved


A restaurant in the village centre has been granted planning permission to increase its capacity to accommodate additional diners.

The owners of Yara plans to combine 27 and 29 London Road and increase the floor space at Number 27 by infilling an open area at the front of the property. This will enable the Lebanese restaurant to provide 16 more covers.

Numbers 27 and 29 were previously separate restaurants, however, having purchased the former Rokali restaurant in May from Ali and Gul Isik, the owners of Yara are planning to combine the two to create one larger restaurant.

The proposal is to install a door between the two premises part way up the stairs of number 29, this will increase the floor area to make the business more efficient but also enable the new combined restaurant to host separate functions at the same time.

Additionally, a lobby will be built at the rear of the premises, in the space under an existing external stair.

The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 16/3638M.
