The Newington Traditional Fish Bar had no problem getting a late hours catering licence but apparently, the Council advised the owner there was no need for planning permission changes. There was. As it is in a residential 'area of special sensitivity' the proprietor needed planning permission to serve food after 8pm.
The planning permission was duly granted last week - but only after an extensive (and costly) delay and a week long petition which gathered 558 signatures of local patrons, backing the bid to regularise late opening.
So this post is just a little extra publicity to help after a difficult period for the owner. And apparently, the fish and chips are special. It is at 23 South Clerk Street. And a restaurant selling fish teas in the downstairs section is also planned.
