Identity of mystery restaurant chain could be revealed next week

Malvern Gazette: APPLICATION: the proposed restaurant site. 1014536601. APPLICATION: the proposed restaurant site. 1014536601.

THE identity of a major restaurant chain which wants to open up in the centre of Malvern could be revealed next week.

An application to convert empty shop and office premises on Belle Vue Terrace will be going before Malvern Hills District Council planners on Wednesday.

The application has been made by MML Malvern Ltd, acting through investment company Severn Capital, but the identity of the chain has not yet been revealed. However, rumour has named the Italian chain Prezzo.

Councillors are being recommended to approve the application, which also includes creating 11 flats on the building's upper floors. Approval would be conditional on satisfactory arrangements being made to control kitchen odours.

Severn Capital director Damien Siviter said this week that if the plan is approved, he hopes that he can name the restaurant chain.

The meeting of the southern area development control committee is at 7pm in the Council Chamber, Avenue Road.

I thought it had already been revealed as one of the Italian chains because I remember thinking it was ridiculous opening up right next to ASK.

"Councillors are being recommended to approve the application, which also includes creating 11 flats on the building's upper floors".
So THAT'S why the development includes 11 "dwellings" ! The locals will object. "House of disrepute gains planing approval by the back door"!

And despite zero parking creation of dwellings with perhaps 2-4 persons per dwelling and 1 - 2 vehicles per dwelling.....where will they park?

Where will deliveries occur for a 70 cover restaurant...double parked on bel vue terrace.? The first accident that occurs due to a wagon unloading food will result in a rightful huge claim against mhdc for not fully investigating implications of this type of development.

It is patently obvious that despite the development being wholly inappropriate with the change of use and massive residential occupancy that mhdc will with commercial lobbying accede to just about anything despite community objections.......whe
re is the section. 106 requirement on this development as developers making fortune.............
.

600k purchase price....
11 dwellings at 400k each - 4.4million
Rent on the Prezzo restaurant is 70k per annum on a 20yr lease.

If mhdc let this through there will be an objection and rightly so.

From memory the drawings say Prezzo, who claim on their web site

"Our popular restaurants, many of them recognised for their architectural value, provide the ideal backdrop to enjoy our food and friendly service. Where possible we seek to restore buildings of local interest, such as the old library in Newbury, the Mills Bakery in Plymouth and listed buildings in Salisbury, Romsey, Mayfair and Dorchester."

So hopefully it will be in character with other places on the top road !!.
