Planning criteria for London Road – reference to Wetherspoons application

Here, for reference, is the planning document regarding London Road – especially in regard to changing Class A1 to Class A2, A3 … presumably it applies to a change to A4 (Pub).

SR5 Town and district shopping centres
With the aim of maintaining and enhancing the defined prime
frontages of:
-t he Town Centres of London Road and Hove; and
-thr District Centres of St James Street, Lewes Road, Brighton Marina
and Boundary Road / Station Road;
the change of use of existing Class A1 use shops to Class A2, A3 (cafes
and restaurants), will be permitted provided all of the following criteria
are met:
a. a clear predominance of Class A1 uses would be maintained;
b. as a result of the proposal there would not be a significant break
in the shopping frontage of more than 15 metres;
c. it would have a positive effect on the shopping environment of the
area by encouraging combined trips and attracting pedestrian
activity to the centre; and
d. the development would not be materially detrimental to the
amenities of occupiers of nearby properties or the general character
of the area.
