After the successful protests against the betting shop in Church Lane, the Liberal Democrats are concerned that yet another planning application has been lodged for a branch of Paddy Power in High Road Leytonstone. The Shopping Centre is already inundated with betting shops – surely there is no demand for another.
Paddy Power Bookmakers have lodged an application to open a branch at 620 High Road Leytonstone.
Residents can find details of the application from the Council website by quoting planning application 2014/0996, which covers change of use from category A1 (retail) to A2 (betting office). in the Planning Explorer.
Other application cover:
- Illuminated fascia and projecting sign – 2014.09967/ADV
- New shopfront – 2014/0998
- Two wall-mounted air conditioning units, two satellite dishes at 1st floor level and a TV aerial- 2014/1003
Comments on this application should be sent to:
