- Planning Permission for Restaurant in Historic 40 North Street

A Chichester landmark is set for a new lease of life after local property
developer Kingsbridge Estates secured planning permission for a GBP2 million

The development company, owned by local businessman Robert Langmead, is
already in talks with several high quality restaurant operators about
creating a restaurant and offices in the grade II* listed 40 North Street.

Robert Langmead, Managing Director of Kingsbridge Estates, said: "40
North Street is one of Chichester's most historic buildings in an important
part of the city and we have worked very closely with the planning
authorities at Chichester District Council to provide a sensitive and
attractive refurbishment.

"The rebirth of 40 North Street has been managed by us with agents Aston
Rose to retain all of the building's attractive and historic character, while
creating something new for Chichester city centre.

"We look forward to providing Chichester with new commercial premises
ready for occupation by October."

40 North Street, which dates to the 19th Century, was previously owned by
West Sussex County Council. It was purchased by Kingsbridge Estates in
February, with planning permission for change of use from private home to
commercial premises being granted on 1 June.

Kingsbridge Estates has alternative planning permission to use 40 North
Street entirely for offices. Architects for the refurbishment are Miller
Hughes Associates of Chichester.
