Yet another Takeaway for Cheriton?

An application has been submitted to convert yet another shop in Cheriton into a Chinese Takeaway. I am totally opposed to this further reduction of retail space in Cheriton, which is the most vibrant local shopping centre in the area. Local traders have fought to overcome adverse conditions and competition from supermarkets, and remain a crucial part of the local community.

I have objected to the Planning Department, pointing out that the local plan limits the amount of space permitted for use by Takeaways and Restaurants and protects the viability of Cheriton as a shopping sub-centre.
