Change of use to restaurant.
Our Response The Trust notes with regret the loss of small units and local traders. Contrary to the applicants’ statement, the letting of this enlarged space to a “national” trader is a retrogressive step, which will have long implications for the attractiveness of Bath as a special place to visit. The Trust would urge the Southgate Ltd Partnership to rethink its retail/restaurant strategy and to consider enhancing the visitor experience by allowing locally distinctive operators to stay in the Square.
