S Clerk St petition gets 558 signatures

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.
