Noise and smells?

THE PLANNING APPLICATION to open a new hot food take-away in Hedon Market Place, presumed to be a Chinese, has run into some serious objections.

As well as significant opposition from Hedon Town Council who object on the grounds of:

  • inadequate parking and servicing
  • noises and disturbances
  • disturbances from smells
  • affects on the Hedon conservation area
  • traffic generation

The East Riding Council’s own Environmental Health Officer (EHO), Jonathan Smith, has also recommended refusal of the planning application. The EHO is concerned that odours and noise from the kitchen, which would be channelled through to the rear of the building via an external flue, would affect nearby residential properties.

“On the basis of the potential to create odour and noise I feel that there is sufficient concern that this proposal would lead to a loss of residential amenity for occupiers of nearby residential property and therefore I would wish to recommend refusal of the application.”

Whilst this in itself does not mean that Council planners will refuse the application – it could still be accepted with an agreement to improve the flue extraction system being proposed – it does seem a big obstacle to the current proposal.

The latest expiry date for “neighbour consultation” is Wednesday 2nd February. Enter the East Riding’s Public Access website and enter Planning Application number 10/05104/PLF to see more details.

  1. I live in the Market Place two doors away from the proposed take away.
    I appose the application on the grounds of noise and smell.
    I cannot have my windows at the rear of my property open at night during the summer months due to the noise generated from air conditioning units at the Legion Club and the fruit shop, also rowdy behaviour from taxi clientele late at night in George Street. Another extractor fan with associated smells to the rear of my property which will undoubtedly be running into the small hours will intolerable.
