- Planning Permission for Restaurant in Historic 40 North
A landmark building in Chichester, UK, is set for a new lease of
life after local property developer Kingsbridge Estates secured
planning permission for a £2 million refurbishment.
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
“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.
