- Planning Consultancy
Caulmert secured planning permission from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, to allow Carluccio’s to increase the floorspace of their existing restaurant space in South Kensington.
Carluccio’s, who have in excess of 95 restaurants across the country, pride themselves in providing customers with a contemporary Italian dining experience. Due to the continued success of their South Kensington restaurant and the lack of available space, Caulmert were instructed to secure planning permission to change the use of the retail space within the adjacent unit to restaurant. Whilst the Council have a restrictive policy in place in relation to the loss of retail floorspace within certain areas, Caulmert’s planners demonstrated the acceptability of the proposals and how they accord with the requirements of the policy. Rather than harming the town centre, the proposals would protect the diversity and range of uses in this secondary retail frontage.
Caulmert’s planners, who work on behalf of a number of restaurant companies, have considerable experience in the restaurant/retail sector and are able to provide clients with clear and professional advice on their proposals and guidance on the most appropriate way to secure the desired outcome.
