Quote:This current application seeks focussed external changes at ground floor level to facilitate the occupation of part of the approved retail floorspace by a baked goods retailer. This retailer has a specific requirement to operate from a small unit, which will be created out of part of what would have been a larger retail unit (as shown on the existing (approved) plans. The baked goods retailer is a high-end operator with restaurants and bakeries in locations across London. To this end, the retailer is considered to be an extremely valuable addition to the Brandon House scheme and the emerging mix of retail uses forming this retail frontage on Borough High Street / Marshalsea Road. Whilst the use of the retail space is not a matter for this application – on the basis that the retailer would operate within the approved retail use classes – we note that the user would be a baked goods retailer, rather than a bakery, and as such there would be no baking on site.
