Controversial Moseley fish and chip shop withdraws planning application

Controversial Moseley fish and chip shop withdraws planning application 

The planning application for a controversial fish and chip shop on the corner of Southlands Road and Billesley Lane has been ‘withdrawn’ from the Planning register.

Background information on this application can be seen at

I’ve also checked with Planning this afternoon and they have received NO comments from either of Moseley and Kings Heath Ward Labour Councillors. This is particular appalling after two of my neighbours contacted Councillor Lisa Trickett, asking if she would support local residents in objecting to the application.

Thankfully Liberal Democrat Councillor, Ernie Hendricks, objected to the application.

The application was due to be heard at the Planning Committee tomorrow (Thursday 5th July. The recommendation from the Planning officers was that it should be ‘refused’. It will not be heard now.

Developers normally ‘withdraw’ a planning application, if they think the application will be refused - as was the situation here. It also means that their planning application fee, in this case £1005, will be set aside. The £1005 will be available to the developer to be used, at a later date, for a planning application at this address.

Oh, be fair. Martin Straker-Welds is on the Planning Committee and cannot comment on planning applications - you know this. And Lisa Trickett was negotiating the substance of the application with the developer directly, in the hope of getting them to opt for a different planning use.

If what you say is true about Cllr Tricket (and I have seen absolutely no evidence that what you have said is in anyway true) then why didn't she comment on the application?

I wasn't aware that Councillor Straker-Weld was now on the Planning Committee.

I believe Lisa felt that commenting before she had finished discussing the issue with the developer would make it less likely that they would cooperate. I don't want to speak for her though, she may wish to write on the matter.
