Three takeaways planned for the John Bull pub in Wodbridge Road, Ipswich

Ipswich Borough Council has received a planning application to convert the John Bull pub on Woodbridge Rd into three hot food takeaways, with a 3 bedroom flat above.

The applicant is Quality Fish Ltd, an Ipswich business.

The planning application proposes no extension to the building and will retain the 16 space car park to the rear, the three takeaway shops will face out onto Woodbridge Rd.

You can view the proposals on the IBC ‘Planning online’ page at the Ipswich Borough Council website and the application case number is 13/00551.

A change of use permission is required from pub to hot food takeaway, so the Council could refuse the development if there were good reasons for refusal. The recent changes at the Golden Key from pub to retail did NOT require a change of use permission so the planning application was for the extension.

The application is likely to go the planning committee at IBC on the 21st August. I would like to know your views on the proposal so that I can represent you at the meeting
